Publisher Comments:

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:

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

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.

Synopsis:

The only one of many CONSTITUTIONS produced by Aristotle's school to have survived, THE CONSTITUTION OF ATHENS is presented here alongside THE POLITICS enabling the student to appreciate both the empirical and the theoretical aspects of Aristotelian political science--in the context of his ethical theory and science of nature.
