The first complete translation into modern English of Aquinas unfinished commentary on Aristotle's Politics, this translation follows the definitive Leonine text of Aquinas and moreover reproduces in English those passages of William of Moerbeke's famously accurate yet elliptical translation of the Politics from which Aquinas worked. Bekker numbers have been added to passages from Moerbeke's translation for easy reference.
