Designed to include all of the texts from presocratics through Machiavelli likely to be read in an undergraduate course on classical political thought, this anthology has at its core generous selections from Plato and Aristotle. Building on this core is a sufficiently diverse and substantial selection of texts from other writers-including Thucydides and the Sophists-to allow for inquiry into the variety of Classical Greek approaches to politics, as well as into Roman, medieval and Renaissance developments of the classical tradition. Preeminent translations and the editors' own thoughtful introductions further distinguish this unique anthology.
Peter Steinberger is Professor of Political Science, Reed College.
