Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought is now firmly estab-lished as the major student textbook series in political theory. It aimsto make available to students all the most important texts in the historyof western political thought, from ancient Greece to the early twentiethcentury. All the familiar classic texts will be included, but the series seeksat the same time to enlarge the conventional canon by incorporating anextensive range of less well-known works, many of them never beforeavailable in a modern English edition. Wherever possible, texts are pub-lished in complete and unabridged form, and translations are speciallycommissioned for the series. Each volume contains a critical introduc-tion together with chronologies, biographical sketches, a guide to furtherreading, and any necessary glossaries and textual apparatus. When com-pleted the series will aim to offer an outline of the entire evolution of western political thought.
