Political Tactics, composed for the Estates General in the months just prior to the outbreak of the French Revolution, is one of Jeremy Bentham's most original works. It contains the earliest and perhaps most important theoretical analysis of parliamentary procedure ever written. With typical thoroughness and insight, Bentham discusses such central themes as the publicity of procedings, the rules of debate, and the proper steps to be taken in composing, proposing, and voting on a motion.
