Condition: Used: Very Good
Comment: This book is in very good condition. The only issue with it is on the top outside edges and the side outside edges of the pages have discoloration, on the upper side it is near the binding and on the side, it is close to the top of the book. I tried using an eraser, but that didn't work Other than that, the book looks amazing. Enjoy!

Review

This handsomely produced book is now the best in its class, and should deservedly elbow its way on to reading lists in the history of political thought.Matthew Festenstein, THES
