Montesquieu revisited by Peter V Conroy( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Montesquieu Revisited, Peter V. Conroy, Jr., reevaluates Montesquieu as a fully fledged "homme de lettres," no longer merely a political, social, and economic commentator. Conroy offers detailed readings of The Persian Letters and Spirit of the Laws as well as an explication of three important but largely overlooked works, Voyages in Europe, Considerations on the Romans, and My Thoughts. In his discussion of these works, Conroy shows what is unique and original in Montesquieu: his theory of climate and its effect on civilization, his desire to show the impact of values and attitudes upon historical events, his narrative strategies, and his constant analytical bent. Montesquieu emerges as a more complex figure than the conventional view of him as exemplar of the age of reason - in fact as a more truly "modern" author
