Leviathan: or The Matter, Form, and Power of a Commonwealth, Ecclesiastical and Civil

( 14 )

Overview

Meet the Author

THOMAS HOBBES (1588-1679) studied classics at Oxford and later became tutor to the son of William Cavendish, Baron of Hardwick. An interest in science and philosophy, heightened by travels in Europe, led to Leviathan-the crowning achievement of his political science. It was so influential that it came under widespread attack and was in danger of condemnation by the House of Commons.

James Adams is the author of fourteen bestselling books of fiction and nonfiction, all of which deal with various aspects of warfare and intelligence. He is a radio host and former CEO of United Press International and managing editor of the Sunday Times (London). He was also a member of the advisory board of the National Security Agency.
