WEFOUNDAn Account of Denmark: As It Was in the Year 1692 (Classic Reprint)

In An Account of Denmark , "Robert Molesworth famously diagnosed the causes of a disordered commonwealth," writes Champion in the introduction. "Unlike the reception of Locke, Molesworth's writings provided insight into processes of corruption rather than simply a set of prescriptive juristic values. In the Account of Denmark , especially, Molesworth established how tyranny worked, identifying the contaminating ideologies and institutions."**Robert Molesworth** (1656–1725) was an Irish politician and diplomat.
