In "The Politics" Aristotle addresses the questions that lie at the heart of political science.

How should society be ordered to ensure the happiness of the individual?

Which forms of government are best and how should they be maintained?

By analyzing a range of city constitutions - oligarchies, democracies and tyrannies - he seeks to establish the strengths and weaknesses of each system, and to decide which are the most effective, in theory and in practice.

A hugely significant work, which has influenced thinkers as diverse as Thomas Aquinas and Machiavelli, "The Politics" remains an outstanding commentary on fundamental political issues and concerns, and provides fascinating insights into the workings and attitudes of the Greek city-state.
