Jean Jacques Rousseau: Political Writings

Madison, Wis.: University of Wisconsin Press. Edited by Frederick Mundell Watkins (1953)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Frederick Watkins’ 1953 edition of Rousseau’s _Political Writings_ has long been noted for being fully accurate while representing much of Rousseau’s eloquence and elegance. It contains what is widely regarded as the finest English translation of _The Social Contract_, Rousseau’s greatest political treatise. In addition, this edition offers the best available translation of the late and important _Government of Poland_ and the only published English translation of the fragment _Constitutional Project for Corsica_, which, says Watkins, provides the clearest possible demonstration of the practical implications of Rousseau’s political thought
