Editorial Reviews

Review

"Wegemer has succeeded in challenging students of More to read more widely in his works for humanist concepts than they have tended to do and to seek the order and coherence that More's works possess." -- Sixteenth Century Journal

"Wegemer's book is refreshing for its clarity. . . . Students of More and others interested in the relationship between early modern politics and poetics will find it useful." -- Theological Studies

"[This book] is perhaps the most thorough treatment of More's political thought available, and it cannot be recommended highly enough." -- Humanitas

About the Author

Gerard B. Wegemer is the author of Thomas More: A Portrait of Courage (1995) and has written about More and his times for such journals as Renascence, Philosophy and Rhetoric, Moreana, and The Review of Politics. He is associate professor of literature at the University of Dallas, and he teaches and lectures regularly on St. Thomas More.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Matthew T. Mehan on July 20, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book has been very helpful to a number of my friends involved in politics in Washington DC. This book, if the reader fails to glean anything else, will show people that a life of study is required in order to rise to the top of the political heap and, once there, actually be an effective custodian of the public trust. Peering into the mind of Thomas More sobers the reader and inspires the politically aspirant to get serious about his virtues, both personal and public.

An added bonus is that the political philosophy of Thomas More is based upon the mysteries of mankind and not on some limited "conservative" or "liberal" ideology.

Thomas More On Statesmanship is one of the best books I have read on practical statesmanship. I highly recommend it to anyone who appreciates Thomas More or wants to delve more deeply into the meaning of politics.
