This book is organized around the claim that if we wish to have a coherent and accurate understanding of the meaning of the political philosophy of Thomas Hobbes, we must reject the truth of the conventional scholarly assertion that Hobbes did not write about the English Civil War. Professor Steinberg argues that Hobbes writes as a traditional political philosopher engaged in developing a polemical attack intended to ridicule and condemn the ideological doctrines of the men who caused the English Civil War. The author explains how the meaning of Hobbes's political writings emerges in connection with the manner in which Hobbes writes about the major issues associated directly with the English Civil War.
