About the Author

BARON DE MONTESQUIEU (1689-1755) was a French jurist, satirist, and political and social philosopher during the Enlightenment. His most well-known work, The Spirit of Laws, profoundly influenced European and American political thought and was relied on by the framers of the US Constitution. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This should be required reading for every high school student in America.
How does one understand the brilliance of our founding fathers and why they rejected total dem- ocracy, vs. democratic republic.
Montesque had insight lacking in our political leaders today.

I had this book when in college, but it deteriorated at such a degree that I had to throw it away. I had been searching for it since then, until I was told to look for it on your web site. The book is a must read , in order to preserve our democratic or republican way of life.

Format: MP3 CD Verified Purchase
I purchased this very important book as an MP3 audiobook and I can honestly say that on such an important book as this the choice of Wanda McCaddon to narrate this book was a very big mistake. I am not alone in my views when I say that this woman has been the most difficult narrator I have ever had to listen to. Her voice is whining, irritating and penetrating and I was astonished to read that she has narrated well over six hundred titles for major book audio publishers.
I so wish to continue listening to this MP3 audiobook, but the narrator is making it extremely difficult for me to achieve this, more than five minutes at a time make this listening project very painful.
Tragically this set contains two MP3's which means one has to listen to this terrible narrator for at least 22 and half hours. I contacted Blackstone audio with regards to this issue, advising them to listen and at least provide their opinion, but I have had no response. Guess they do not care. It would have been much better read by a man, or anybody other than Wanda.
Very disappointing. Wanda obviously can pronounce the most difficult of names easily but her narration sends one into insanity.
