Early modern state formation or gute Policey? The good order of the community

Samenvatting

This review article focuses on how gute Policey helps us understand the organisation of early modern communities–and their governments. The practice of gute Policey–or good order of the community–became visible through legislation (normative texts), while many contemporary academics and lawyers wrote theoretical texts about it. The field is well-known within German research, but it seems hardly known within the Anglophone world due to a preoccupation with state-building/ formation. This article discusses the mainstream interpretations of why governments created more and more legislation: increased control, implementation and communalism–and the resulting negotiated vision.
