I am deeply indebted to Thomas Christian0 for his detailed comments on a draft of this article. It was Christiano's paper “Secession, Democracy, and Distributive Justice” (Arizona Law Review 37, no. 1 : 65–72) that encouraged me to take a more institutional approach to secession. I am also very grateful to the editors of Philosophy G Public Affairs for stimulating me to strengthen several key arguments. I also received helpful comments from Richard Bolin, Harry Brighouse, Wayne Norman, David Schmidtz, Christopher Wellman, and Clark Wolf.
