The confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau by Jean-Jacques Rousseau ( Book )
1,895 editions published between 1766 and 2010 in 24 languages and held by 4,210 libraries worldwide
"In his Confessions, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78) tells the story of his life, from the formative experiences of his humble childhood in Geneva, through the achievement of international fame as novelist and philosopher in Paris, to his wanderings as an exile, persecuted by governments and alienated from the modern world. In trying to explain who he was and how he came to be the object of others' admiration and abuse, Rousseau analyses with unique insight the relationship between an elusive but essential inner self and the variety of social identities he was led to adopt. Confessions is Rousseau's search, through every resource of language, to convey what he despairs of putting into words: the personal quality of one's own existence." "This translation includes the preface to the Neuchatel manuscript, which provides insights into Rousseau's conception of autobiography."--BOOK JACKET.
The social contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau ( Book )
1,427 editions published between 1754 and 2011 in 29 languages and held by 3,969 libraries worldwide
Rousseau sought to ground his political theory in an understanding of human nature, which he believed to be basically good but corrupted by the conflicting interests within society. Here self-interest degenerated into a state of war from which humanity could only be extricated by the imposition of a contract. As a party to the compact, each individual would find his true interest served within the political expression of the community of man, or the general will.

Rousseau's great epistolary novel, Julie, or the New Heloise, has been virtually unavailable in English since 1810.

Essay on the origin of languages and writings related to music by Jean-Jacques Rousseau ( Book )
135 editions published between 1817 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,377 libraries worldwide
"Jean-Jacques Rousseau the writer-philosopher was a practicing musician and theorist for years before publication of his first Discourse, but scholars have neglected these fertile, inexhaustible ideas because they were either unavailable in a critical edition or viewed as standing outside the aegis of his system of thought." "This graceful translation remedies both those failings by bringing together the Essay with a comprehensive selection of the musical writings. Many of the latter are responses to authors like Rameau, Grimm, and Raynal, and a unique feature of this edition is the inclusion of writings by these authors to help establish the historical and ideological context of Rousseau's writings and the intellectual exchanges of which they are a part."--BOOK JACKET.

Discourse on political economy ; and, the social contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau ( Book )
106 editions published between 1758 and 2008 in 10 languages and held by 658 libraries worldwide
Censored in its own time, the Social Contract (1762) remains a key source of democratic belief and is one of the classics of political theory. It argues concisely but eloquently, that the basis of any legitimate society must be the agreement of its members. As humans we were |born free' and our subjection to government must be freely accepted. Rousseau is essentially a radical thinker, and in a broad sense a revolutionary. He insisted on the sovereignty of the people, and made some provocative statements that are still highly controversial. His greatest contribution to political thought is the.
