Thomas Christiano, University of Arizona
This very readable edition of Hobbes's Leviathan is an excellent resource for students of political philosophy and its history...
In their substantial introduction, the editors examine all previous editions of Leviathan, throwing light on its history, calling into question the assumptions of previous editors, and thus providing an entirely new picture of its production. Through these new perspectives they are able to offer the first complete critical edition, one that takes proper account of the book's publishing history and of Hobbes's own wishes. The result is as definitive an edition of Leviathan as modern scholarship can provide.
