Editorial Reviews

CHOICE
Well worth study and reflection both as a fresh interpretation of the Politicsand as a critical assessment of contemporary scholarship on Aristotle and modern political theory.
American Political Science Review
All of us who teach the Politics, no matter how many or how few times we have done it before, will teach the books better and with more pleasure having read Nichols. Citizens and Statesmenis a marvel of close reading combined with clarity and consummate accessibility.
Ancient Philosophy
...excellent... It is the rare combination of responsibility to detail and broad comprehension that makes the book such a delight. ...of great value.
Richard H. Cox
A clear, thoughtful, and serious treatment of one of the truly fundamental texts of political philosophy.dd
Stephen Salkever
By far the best book-length study of the Politicsavailable in English.
Delba Winthrop
...remarkably successful at showing how Aristotle's thought sheds light on contemporary concerns without distorting either.
Midwest Book Review
Writing in a lucid, graceful prose, [Nichols] offers an original interpretation grounded in a close reading of the text.
