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 the MP3 CD edition.

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.

It's a classic. I would be doing a disservice if I tried to provide commentary on such a revolutionary work, so I can only say that you are not informed if you have not read this work.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
