On Alien Rule and Self-Government

On Alien Rule and Self-Government

By John Plamenatz

Longmans, 1960, 224 pp.

A very useful essay that attempts to clarify some of the confused arguments that have raged about "self-government" and "alien rule," especially in the context of European rule over non-Europeans. A Montenegrin by birth, and now an Oxford don, Mr. Plamenatz is singularly well equipped to deal with this tormented issue.
