9780226921846: Aristotle's

One of the fundamental works of Western political thought, Aristotle’s masterwork is the first systematic treatise on the science of politics. For almost three decades, Carnes Lord’s justly acclaimed translation has served as the standard English edition. Widely regarded as the most faithful to both the original Greek and Aristotle’s distinctive style, it is also written in clear, contemporary English.

This new edition of the Politics retains and adds to Lord’s already extensive notes, clarifying the flow of Aristotle’s argument and identifying literary and historical references. A glossary defines key terms in Aristotle’s philosophical-political vocabulary. Lord has made revisions to problematic passages throughout the translation in order to enhance both its accuracy and its readability. He has also substantially revised his introduction for the new edition, presenting an account of Aristotle’s life in relation to political events of his time; the character and history of his writings and of the Politics in particular; his overall conception of political science; and his impact on subsequent political thought from antiquity to the present. Further enhancing this new edition is an up-to-date selected bibliography.

About the Author:

Carnes Lord is professor of strategic leadership at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. He is the author of Education and Culture in the Political Thought of Aristotle and The Modern Prince: What Leaders Need to Know Now, among other works.

Review:

“This revised edition of Aristotle’s 'Politics' easily establishes it as the best available in English. By offering a longer introductory essay that grapples with the substance of Aristotle’s argument, a new index, revamped notes, and—most important—by revising and correcting the text, Carnes Lord has substantially improved what was already a fine rendering of Aristotle’s classic account of political science. A great service to students and scholars alike.” (Robert C. Bartlett, cotranslator of Aristotle’s “Nicomachean Ethics”)

"This new edition of Lord's will continue to be a widely used translation of Aristotle's Politics." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2013-12-30)

Praise for the previous edition“Lord’s translation is clearly the best available.”
(Claremont Review of Books)

“Lord contributed to raising scholarly interest in Aristotle with his groundbreaking translation. Now, nearly thirty years later, we are presented with a new edition. . . . The new format was chosen prudently. . . . The choice of footnotes will doubtless help students, scholars, and interested readers to solve the problems of textual analysis and interpretation more quickly and in the process of reading the text." (History of Poltical Thought 2015-05-22)
