Editorial Reviews


'This is an excellent book on centrally important - but often neglected - aspects of Hobbes' political and moral theories. It is powerfully argued and lucidly expressed. Written with verve and humor, it is great fun to read, and deserves a wide audience.' Johann Sommerville, University of Wisconsin-Madison

'Sreedhar offers a thought-provoking, textually sensitive and plausible discussion of such central topics as liberty, authorization and absolutism, explaining the mutual relationships of these ideas in Hobbes's system. Clearly written and accessibly argued, this book will be of interest to philosophers, political scientists, intellectual historians and scholars of social theory alike.' Sharon Lloyd, University of Southern California

Book Description

This book defends an interpretation of Hobbes's political philosophy that focuses on his justification for political disobedience and demonstrates the existence of a Hobbesian theory of resistance. It will appeal to all who are interested in the nature and limits of political authority and the modern origins of these issues.
The latest book club pick from Oprah
