Visions of Politics is a major collection of the principal published and unpublished essays of Quentin Skinner, one of the leading historians of ideas in the world who, over the past forty years, has pioneered a distinctive and highly influential approach to the subject. Skinner's work is characterized by philosophical power, clarity, and elegance of exposition, and these essays, many of which are now recognized classics, provide a fascinating and convenient digest of the development of his thought. Each essay has been carefully revised for publication in this collection. Quentin Skinner is a Fellow of the British Academy and Regius Professor of Modern History and Pro-Vice-Chancellor University of Cambridge. Professor Skinner has been associated with institutions world-wide, including Princeton University, Northwestern University, Australian National University and Université Paris.

'This is an essential collection of essays, written by one of the world's greatest exponents of the history of political thought. ... it should serve to challenge the all too often naive approach to the history of ideas employed in IR, while pointing to the richness of human lived experience and the political traditions that are our heritage and that have shaped and structured the very world in which we live.' International Affairs
'As a retrospective showcase of the work of a major scholar, this is impressive. Skinner's ability to combine political and philosophical insight with minute knowledge of several centuries of political literature is awe inspiring.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
' ... this is a deeply impressive collection which displays Skinner's exceptional range.' The New York Review
