Overview

Le Contrat Social ou Principes du Droit Politique Vol 1 (of 2)
The Social Contract or the Principles of Political Rights Vol 1 (of 2)
by Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Politics is a subject that has been of interest to Jean-Jacques Rousseau. As early as 1752 he formulated the idea that "vices belong to badly governed people, rather than to people themselves.". In 1755 he wrote Le Discours sur l'origine et les fondements de l'inégalité parmi les hommes (Discourse on Inequality) in response the question posed by the French Academy : « Quelle est l’origine de l’inégalité parmi les hommes et si elle est autorisée par la loi naturelle ? » (What is the origin of inequality among mankind and whether it is ahtorized by the natural law?). This book investigates the legitimacy of societies and the forms of power, and lays down the political foundations of the Social Contract.
The Social Contract was a progressive work that helped inspire political reforms or revolutions in Europe, especially in France. The Social Contract argued against the idea that monarchs were divinely empowered to legislate; as Rousseau asserts, only the people, in the form of the sovereign, have that all-powerful right.

About The Bilingual Edition
Project Bilingual (A division of Wolf Pup Books) is a continuing project making available great original French writers' texts along with their English translation. This edition, which offers after every original language paragraph its translation, makes both grammar and vocabulary checks as painless as possible. Idiomatic forms that could be overlooked can be easily detected.
Furthermore, large paragraphs have been broken down to much smaller units so that the check is as effortless as possible. We do hope that by reading French writers that defined the language itself or whose work permeated the French culture, you will be able to get the maximum benefit from this language series. Although this edition is not a replacement for traditional methods of learning language, it is a very powerful tool to speed up the process once you have attained the intermediate level and beyond.
