Oxford University Press

This introduction identifies some themes of the collection and indicates the content of each chapter. It starts by pointing out that every contribution is concerned, even if only implicitly, with the nature of legitimacy. It then notes some aspects of this general issue discussed by the contributors and mentions two theorists whose work on legitimacy has been especially influential. The introduction ends with brief descriptions of each of the chapters. Those in Part One are concerned directly with the nature of legitimacy. Those in Part Two consider the legitimacy of the state. The chapters in Part Three examine legitimacy beyond the state.

Keywords:   legitimacy, authority, political obligation, state, international law
