This is the first new translation for forty years of a fascinating work of political theory, until now only available in academic libraries. Dante's Monarchy addresses the fundamental question of what form of political organization best suits human nature; it embodies a political vision of startling originality and power, and illuminates the intellectual interests and achievements of one of the world's great poets. Prue Shaw's translation is accompanied by a full introduction and notes, which provide a complete guide to the text, and places Monarchy in the context of Dante's life and work.
Introduction, Bibliographical note etc; Monarchia Books I, II, III; notes, tables, index.

This book of Dante must be revisited by contemporary theorists. His arguments truelly work, yet secularists would complain that truth is found within/subjective rather than pronounced/objective(maybe absolute). Nonetheless we need order and not a fragmented Legalism.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In his book, De Monarchia (Monarchy), Dante has captured the true and actuall essence of Monarchy and all which it brings with itself. A must read for all political science students!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
