Politics (Google eBook)
Aristotle's "Politics" is a treatise on the subject of political science and government and is considered to be one of the greatest works on the subject from classical antiquity. Expounding upon, "The Republic", the earlier work of his teacher Plato, Aristotle examines the various options for governance and their respective values. A detailed and pragmatic approach to the subject, Aristotle's "Politics" provides much of the foundation for modern political thought. Great insight for the modern student of political science can be found in this classic work on the subject.
