Ignore the review above by Mease. This is the standard edition for serious students of Rousseau, and includes a wealth of valuable information and analyses on the text.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The translation of this work is great, but its about the only redeeming feature of this work. The introduction really only addresses the Social Contract, and the editor didn't use footnotes to supplement those of Rousseau. I would have liked to see more scholarship in this work; it's just the reader and Rousseau, which can be uncomfortable, because he isn't a very friendly author. Also, I hate the covers on these Cambridge paperbacks; they're as stubborn as children.
