Machiavelli, Niccoláo, (1469-1527)

Machiavelli / The prince ; edited by Quentin Skinner and Russell Price

Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1988

Cambridge texts in the history of political though

Abstract: In his introduction to this new translation by Russell Price, Professor Skinner presents a lucid analysis of Machiavelli's text as a response both to the world of Florentine politics, and as an attack on the advice-books for princes published by a number of his contemporaries. This new edition includes notes on the principal events in Machiavelli's life, and on the vocabulary of The Prince, as well as biographical notes on characters in the text.

Hobbes and the social contract tradition / Jean Hampton.

1st paperback ed.

Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1988, c1986.

Abstract: This major study of Hobbes' political philosophy draws on recent developments in game and decision theory to explore whether the thrust of the argument in Leviathan, that it is in the interests of the people to create a ruler with absolute power, can be shown to be cogent. Professor Hampton has written a book of vital importance to political philosophers, political and social scientists, and intellectual historians.

Locke, John, (1632-1704.)

Two treatises of government / John Locke ; edited with an introduction and notes by Peter Laslett.

Student ed.

Cambridge [England] ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1988.

Cambridge texts in the history of political thought

Abstract: This is the revised version of Peter Laslett's acclaimed edition of Two Treatises of Government, which is widely recognised as one of the classic pieces of recent scholarship in the history of ideas, read and used by students of political theory throughout the world. This 1988 edition revises Dr Laslett's second edition (1970) and includes an updated bibliography, a guide to further reading and a fully reset and revised introduction which surveys advances in Locke scholarship since publication of the second edition. In the introduction, Dr Laslett shows that the Two Treatises were not a rationalisation of the events of 1688 but rather a call for a revolution yet to come.
