Default Inquiry into possible political science sources

Greetings and salutations.


I hope everyone is doing well personally and professionally.


I would like to know the titles of any works composed in the 17th, 18th, and 19th century that defended the idea of an aristocracy over liberal ideas circulating at the time. I would also like to know the titles of any works written around the same time opposed to democracy, republican form of government, and the idea of political rights belonging to the masses and not just the few. Last, can anyone provide me with any economic, moral, or social arguments written during this time frame to defend slavery?

If anyone can give me any titles or leads I would greatly appreciate it.

Michel Montaigne wrote is Essays in the late 16th Century, when France was engaged in a raging civil war. Montaigne was a die-hard loyalist, and defended monarchy against this upstart Republicanism in several of his essays.

You can download his complete Essays free from gutenberg.org here.

This is a little earlier than you asked for, but I can't resist trying to make some use out of having read it. Once when I was a kid, and recently out of desperation because there was nothing else here to read.
