Publisher's Description

Janet Coleman's two volume history of European politicaltheorising, from the ancient Greeks to the Renaissance is theintroduction which many have been waiting for.

In this volume, Coleman discusses the acknowledged great worksof Greek, Roman, and early Christian writers to show how thehistorical contexts in which certain ideas about ethics andpolitics became dominant or fell from dominance, help to explainthe ideas themselves. Throughout she draws on recent scholarlycommentaries written by specialists in philosophy, contemporarypolitical theory, classical languages and cultures, and on ancientand early Christian history and theology. Janet Coleman shows thatthe Greeks and Romans' arguments can be seen as logical andcoherent if we can grasp the questions they thought itimportant to answer.

Editorial Reviews

"These volumes cover the scholarship of the last four decades with considerable care and in an impeccably cosmopolitan manner...in its second volume, the best single-volume history of medieval political thought to put into the hands of any intelligent and serious student...Coleman's History is a fine achievement and of clear use value throughout. It breathes the spirit of a very different epoch, while providing help for all of us who must deal, in our respective roles, with the ideas that it chronicles." John Dunn, University of Cambridge.
