BOLL 74: John Millar, “Circumstances which tend to increase the power of the Sovereign” (1771)
This is part of The OLL Reader: An Anthology of the Best of the OLL which is a collection of some of the most important material in the OLL. It is a chapter from John Millar’s The Origin of the Distinction of Ranks (1771) in which he discusses how a modern monarchy emerges and is soon confronted by “persons of inferior rank” who challenge the monarch’s privileges. A thematic list of material in the OLL Reader is available here.
