Description

Aristotle's Politics is one of the most influential texts in the history of political thought, and is essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the ways in which human societies are organized and governed.

For this edition Sir Ernest Barker's fine translation has been extensively revised to meet the needs of the modern reader. The introduction and notes examine the historical and philosophical background of the work and discuss its significance for modern political thought.

Reviews

Stalley...has...subjected the actual translation to `some fairly drastic revision'...the result is much greater clarity when it comes to both the Greek text and to exegesis of that text. The end-product is a most distinguished contribution to a collection whose prices seem to defy an economic return but I'm not complaining. - Greece and Rome Reviews 42

Barker's translation has been given new life. - Polis
