Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Despite its importance both historically and within the Aristotelian corpus, and despite the outpouring of first-rate scholarship on Aristotle in the past thirty years. The Politics has received much less attention than it deserves. This situation is, however, beginning to be rectified." -The Philosophical Review, Vol. 108
