Michael Sonenscher

Fellow of King's College
I directed studies in history at King's College from 1988 to 2014 and have now retired. I continue to write and teach on subjects related to my own research in the history of political thought, mainly in France, between about 1750 and 1900.
Roman law in nineteenth-century European thought. History of political economy. Theories of sovereignty in the nineteenth century.
