They represent Cicero's vision of an ideal society and remain his most important works of political philosophy. On the Commonwealth survives only in part, and On the Laws was never completed. The present volume offers a new scholarly reconstruction of the fragments of On the Commonwealth and a masterly translation of both dialogues. The texts are supported by a helpful, concise introduction, notes, synopsis, biographical notes and bibliography; students in politics, philosophy, ancient history, law and classics will gain new understanding of one of the great philosophers and political thinkers of antiquity thanks to this volume."--Jacket."@en ;
