Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of classic works by Western moral and political theorists from Plato to Nietzsche. Most selections are presented in their entirety, or in large excerpts, accompanied by introductions on the authors' lives and extensive notes to texts. Print is small. This second edition includes new translations of various works, omission of works by Aquinas, additional selections by Augustine and Hume, and the addition of more books of Aristotle's "Politics". Useful as a basic text in courses on moral and political theory. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
