We are pleased to announce that CES faculty member and Leverett Saltonstall Professor of History at Harvard, Charles Maier, will receive the prestigious Ehrenkreuz fuer Wissenschaft und Kunst 1. Klasse (Austrain Decoration for Science and Art, 1st Class) from the Austrian Government on Friday, March 28, 2014.
Professor Maier also released his new book, Leviathan 2.0: Inventing Modern Statehood. This book updates Thomas Hobbes' classic account to explain how modern statehood took shape between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, before it unraveled into the political uncertainty that persists today.
