The publication of Richard Tuck's 2012 Seeley Lectures constituted an important event in intellectual history and political theory. The Sleeping Sovereign reflects the depth of Tuck's nearly forty years of historical inquiry into the concepts of rights, reason of state, and freedom, beginning with Natural Rights Theories. The leading member of the “Cambridge school” of the study of the history of political thought in the United States, and the Frank G. Thomson Professor of Government at Harvard University, Tuck combines a contextualist, and often intertextualist, approach to the interpretation of canonical works with a theorist's attention to the value these works retain for contemporary political life.
A prior version of this essay was presented at a conference on The Sleeping Sovereign at Yale University at 7 April 2017. We thank Isaac Nakhimovsky for the invitation to comment on the work and Richard Tuck for his generous response to the discussion, and are grateful to Bryan Garsten, Sam Moyn, and Sophie Smith for their thoughts on that draft. We also thank Duncan Kelly and the editorial team at Modern Intellectual History for the invitation to review the work and for their advice.

29 In discussing Whiting, Tuck seems to group him in with advocates of the sovereign/government distinction (193–4). This is a mistake, for Whiting, as least in 1778, was against such a distinction, as can be seen in the central theoretical point of his address—that government was possible without explicit authorization by the popular sovereign.
