Kuzmin Eduard Leonidovich, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, is the author of many works on  sovereignty, international law and international relations. This book shows the conception and development of the idea of national sovereignty that originated from the 16th century French thinker, Jean Bodin. The author has studied a wide range of literary and factual materials to find key aspects closely linked to the contemporary treatment of the issue of sovereignty: the challenges of globalization; American exceptionalism doctrines; double standards in democracy and human rights; the right of nations to self determination; federalism and unrecognized states. Much attention is given to integration processes, increasing global management and the decisive role of the UN in this.
The book is written in lively, straightforward language, and aimed at specialists in the history of political sciences, the theory of state and law, constitutional and international law, and a wide circle of readers interested in the pressing questions of modern world politics.
