Aristotle's Politics is widely recognized as one of the classics of the history of political philosophy, and like every other such masterpiece, it is a work about which there is deep division. Many readers of Aristotle are uncertain whether his Politics has any contribution to make to contemporary debates about political life and political theory. The essays in this volume sharpen this issue by addressing, implicitly or explicitly, this very question about the relevance of Aristotle's thinking in contemporary political philosophy. Written by leading scholars in lucid and accessible style, the ten essays in this volume will prove to be a critical resource for newcomers to Aristotle. Book jacket.
