Publisher Comments:

One of the fundamental works of Western political thought, Aristotleandrsquo;s masterwork is the first systematic treatise on the science of politics. For almost three decades, Carnes Lordandrsquo;s justly acclaimed translation has served as the standard English edition. Widely regarded as the most faithful to both the original Greek and Aristotleandrsquo;s distinctive style, it is also written in clear, contemporary English.

This new edition of the Politics retains and adds to Lordandrsquo;s already extensive notes, clarifying the flow of Aristotleandrsquo;s argument and identifying literary and historical references. A glossary defines key terms in Aristotleandrsquo;s philosophical-political vocabulary. Lord has made revisions to problematic passages throughout the translation in order to enhance both its accuracy and its readability. He has also substantially revised his introduction for the new edition, presenting an account of Aristotleandrsquo;s life in relation to political events of his time; the character and history of his writings and of the Politics in particular; his overall conception of political science; and his impact on subsequent political thought from antiquity to the present. Further enhancing this new edition is an up-to-date selected bibliography.

Synopsis:

An extended and revised edition of one of the best-selling Cambridge Texts.

Synopsis:

This new edition of The Politics provides students with an unusually lucid and accessible account of this complex, difficult and enormously influential work. It is based on Jonathan Barnes' revision of the renowned Jowett translation, and includes detailed note, a guide to further reading and a chronology of the principal events in Aristotle's life. In his introduction Stephen Everson tackles those problems most likely to hamper students in understanding The Politics. Aristotle's political theory is closely related to claims and types of explanations which he uses and justifies elsewhere in his works, and so one of Everson's main purposes is to show how Aristotle's arguments can best be grasped through an understanding of what he has to say in The Physics about nature and in the The Ethics about human flourishing.

Synopsis:

This new collection of Aristotle's political writings provides the student with all the necessary materials for a full understanding of his work as a political scientist. In addition to a revised and extended introduction, this expanded Cambridge Texts edition contains an extensive guide to further reading and an index of names with biographical notes. Presentation of The Politics and The Constitution of Athens in a single volume will make this the most attractive and convenient student edition of these seminal works currently available.
