Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The notes are excellent. There are very few people likely to pick up Locke who would not find them of use. Would that every edition of a classic work had an index of this quality, allowing the reader to go back and find a previous discussion touching on the same issue. The Introduction is clearly written, intelligent, and the argument is sound. I know of no better short introduction to this work."
—Paul A. Rahe, Charles O. Lee and Louise K. Lee Chair in the Western Heritage, Professor of History, Hillsdale College

The title leads you to believe that both essays are included but it is only the second. (my wife got it for me as a present so I didn't have the opportunity to check the number of pages) Also, I didn't care for the size of the book: 11 1/4" x 8 1/4". The cover is nice.
