From the PublisherThis will be the preferred edition of Plato’s Statesman for teachers and students who are serious not only about reading the text in good translation, but also about working through its arguments.
— Dustin Gish, College of the Holy Cross
“Having taught Plato's dialogues in my classes over the past forty-three years to upper level undergraduates, I can especially appreciate the value of this new edition of Plato's Statesman. The three translators have paid very close attention to the amazing fecund versatility of the Greek text, producing a translation that is as accurate and lively as possible and the best currently available for classroom use. The interpretative essay is unique in its highlighting of all of the issues that a thoughtful reader should be led to consider concerning this work. As has been the case with other works by these translators, the glossary leads any Greek-less reader as close as possible to the interconnections of the major words that sustain the flow and eddies of this perennially fascinating work.”
—Donald Lindenmuth, The Pennsylvania State University
“All serious students of Plato will want to obtain this book. Brann, Kalkavage, and Salem have provided all the tools one needs--short of a knowledge of ancient Greek--to undertake in-depth study of this enormously important, complex, and fascinating dialogue.”
—Jacob Howland, University of Tulsa
