This book was becoming too influential to remain out of print for long, and its first sentence alone -"sovereign is he who decides on the exception"- has likely been cited by more scholars than have ever actually read the second sentence. Still, though influenced by second-hand readings of Schmitt, most scholars manage to get quite a bit right about Schmitt's thesis, if only because it is simple, aphoristic and open-ended. Whatever its merits- and there are many- there is much to take exception with in Schmitt's book and in the concepts it has influenced.

Carl Schmitt (1888-1985), the author of such books as Political Theology and The Crisis of Parliamentary Democracy (both published in English by The MIT Press), was one of the leading political and legal theorists of the twentieth century. His critical discussions of liberal democratic ideals and institutions continue to arouse controversy, but even his opponents concede his uncanny sense for the basic problems of modern politics. Political Romanticism is a historical study that, like all of Schmitt's major works, offers a fundamental political critique. In it, he defends a concept of political action based on notions of good and evil, justice and injustice, and attacks the political passivity entailed by the romanticization of experience. The book has three strands. The first is an attack on received notions of the origins of the Romantic Movement. Schmitt argues that this movement represents a secularization, subjectification, and privatization in which God is replaced by the emancipated, private individual of the bourgeois social order. The second is an assault on political romanticism that includes a broader attack on the new European bourgeoisie, which Schmitt characterizes as the historical bearer of the movement. The third strand is a defense of political conservatism and a refutation of the view that political romanticism is intrinsically linked with romanticism. Here Schmitt argues that the political romantic is tied not to positions but to aesthetics, and can therefore as easily become a Danton as a Frederick the Great. Guy Oakes's introduction places the book in historical context and also suggests its continuing relevance through his discussion of the latest outcropping of political romanticism in the late 1960s, intriguingly brought out in his example of Norman Mailer as a political romantic. Political Romanticism is included in the series Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy.

Schmitt's Political Romanticism is a truly philosophical exposition of the liberal political philosophy. Political philosophy, as distinguished from the philosophy of politics, which is in fact basically concerned with the theory of politics, is seldom treated with such depth and rigor by the political thinkers of the 20th century. All who are interested in Liberalism as a philosophical enterprise will surely find Schmitt's book a great work of Philosophy in the strict sense.

Schmitt has been getting a lot of attention lately on C-Span and in the political blogs. If you are thinking of getting this title be aware that Amazon and A1 books will let you down. A1 has a policy of taking your money THEN trying to locate the book and this book is out of print. Amazon hasn't caught up to this fact yet so they take your money then put you on hold till you finally get fed up and cancel the order. I've tryed to bring this to their attention with no luck--they both keep it listed as available. So maybe this'll work. Keep you eyes peeled though, I just got a copy on alibris for... 44.00!
