Aristotle in his Politics devotes a large portion to his theory of the best regime. Renewed interest in this idea, along with scholarly disagreements on what Aristotle says, make this reading an important contribution to classical political studies. Chuska's approach is a defense of Aristotle's theory, showing it to be necessary and helpful, despite controversy over his purportedly narrow-minded discussions of non-Greeks. Relying on the text of Politics as well as Greek history and other works by Aristotle, Chuska expands on the theory of the best city.
