-Aristotle’s Politics along with Plato’s Republic constitute the fountain head of social and political theory. In this translation of Politics by Sir Ernest Barker he tries to give a , “version which is couched in a modern style and furnished with appropriate ‘helps to study’ which will bring its substance home to their minds.” In addition to translating into contemporary prose style he has also elucidated the course of Aristotle’s argument, from time to time, with explanation enclosed in brackets or added as footnotes. The twofold result is a definitive translation and an independent but correlated, scholarly narrative—an admirable consolidation of the wisdom of the big A with modern scholarship.
