Certain English writers of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, whom scholars often associate with classical republicanism, were not, in fact, hostile to liberalism. Indeed, these thinkers contributed to a synthesis of liberalism and modern republicanism. As this book argues, Marchamont Nedham, James Harrington, Henry Neville, Algernon Sidney, and John Trenchard and Thomas Gordon, the co-authors of a series of editorials entitled Cato's Letters, provide a synthesis that responds to the demands of both republicans and liberals by offering a politically engaged citizenry as well as the protection of individual rights. The book also reinterprets the writings of Machiavelli and Hobbes to show that each contributed in a fundamental way to the formation of this liberal republicanism.

Time and the Gods

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/time-and-the-gods-18...
Time and the Gods is the first book by Irish fantasy writer Lord Dunsany, considered a major influence on the work of J.R.R. Tolkien, H.P. Lovecraft, Ursula K. Le Guin and others. The book was first published in hardcover by William Heinemann in September, 1906, and has been reprinted a number of times since. It was issued by the Modern Library in an unauthorised combined edition with The Book of Wonder under the latter's title in 1918. Dunsany had a brief preface in the original edition and added a new introduction to the 1922 edition. The book is a series of short stories linked by Dunsany's invented pantheon of deities who dwell in Pegana. It was preceded by his earlier collection The Gods of Pegana and followed by some stories in The Sword of Welleran and Other Stories. The book was illustrated by Dunsany's preferred artist Sidney Sime, who provided a range of black and white plates, the originals of which are still at Dunsany Castle. These were present in the 1906 and 1922 editions, not in the unauthorised collections and not in most modern reproductions. The title is thought to have been influenced by Algernon Swinburne, who wrote the line "Time and the Gods are at strife" in his 1866 poem "Hymn to Proserpine."
