Andrew Fletcher: Political Works Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first complete modern edition of the political works of Andrew Fletcher (1655-1716), one of the most acute observers of the European political order of his time and an important forerunner of the Scottish Enlightenment. Famous for his opposition to the Union with England in 1707, he viewed the problems of his own country in the light of a much broader knowledge of European affairs. His writings illustrate the long influence of Machiavelli on European political thought, and illuminates the major themes of the Enlightenment.
