Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'As there is no collection of Diderot's political writings available in English translation, this volume fills an obvious gap and will, one hopes, encourage further study of Diderot's contribution to political theory … These texts are prefaced by an elegant introduction, and accompanied by a chronology, a useful guide to further reading and an ample index.'
