"The lavish, meticulous annotation, which reconciles Hobbes's manuscripts and the early published English and Latin versions is certainly this edition's most significant contribution to the republic of letters. But the general reader will probably find Malcolm's introduction, a tour de force that takes up the entire first volume, to be of greatest value. Malcolm...fluently and authoritatively sets Leviathan and its author in their time and provides a keen and detailed study of Leviathan's genesis. Malcolm's volume itself is an enduring work of history."--Ben Schwartz, The Atlantic
"Malcolm's edition of Leviathan aims to present the masterpiece as faithfully as possible. The result -- a product of many years of labour -- is an astonishing achievement of the highest scholarship. We have never before had so accurate and so richly annotated a version of the text, and it is unlikely that there will ever be another that can match this edition."--John Gray, New Statesman
"Dr Malcolm seems to have read, and judiciously assessed, everything that may be relevant to everything that may be relevant (this includes graveyard inscriptions, so it can be fairly said that he leaves no stone unturned).--The Economist
"The most helpful piece of scholarship was Noel Malcolm's translating the Latin version and appendix of Hobbes's Leviathan in his monumental three-volume edition"--Christopher Howse, The Spectator (Books of the Year)
