No other English language translation of Aristotle's notoriously
difficult work comes close to the standard of accuracy and readability
set here by C.D.C. Reeve. The ideal choice for students and scholars
alike, this volume provides the reader with more of the resources needed
to understand Aristotle's argument than any other edition. An
introductory essay by Reeve situates Politics in Aristotle's
overall thought and offers an engaging critical introduction to its
central argument. A detailed glossary, footnotes, bibliography, and
indexes provide historical background, analytical assistance with
particular passages, and a guide both to Aristotle's philosophy and to
scholarship on it.
