Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Holding men in wretched subservience, feudalism --- alongside religion --- was a powerful force in the eighteenth century. Self-serving monarchic social systems, which collectively reduced common people to servitude, were now attacked by Enlightenment philosophers, of whom Rousseau was a leading light. His masterpiece, The Social Contract, profoundly influenced the subsequent development of society and remains provocative in a modern age of continuing widespread vested interest.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book shouldn't be sold to people. It's printed badly, it has weird headers at the top of every page, it's oddly sized and terribly done. Shoddy job all around.

This book came just in time as I had to order it last minute for a class. The condition was just as expected, and I couldn't be happier. Not to mention how excited I was to have Rousseau added to my collection.

It's a great read! This book arrived on time and it's well worth its price. I read it for one of my classes and got a lot out of it.
