Carrithers Writes Montesquieu's Science of Politics

Dr. David Carrithers is one of the authors of Montesquieru's Science of Politics, a collection of essays dedicated to the analysis of Montesquieu's contributions to political science. The contributors review the controversies that have arisen in the interpretation of Montesquieu's thought. Through study of the historical, political, and philosophical contexts of Montesquieu's ideas, the contributors provide fresh readings of "The Spirit of Laws." In this first-ever English-language group of essays, the authors clarify the goals and ambitions of Montesquieu, and they point out the pertinence of this thinking to current world problems.
