Product Description:

An introduction to the political thought of Augustine, if not to Christian political thought in general. It includes selections from 'City of God', as well as from many lesser-known writings of Augustine.

Review:

[This volume] offers one-stop access to the political ideas of a major pre-modern thinker. The translations are fresh, accurate, supple, and clear, and the notes and comments are helpful. Ernest Fortin's excellent Introduction sets the central text, the "City of God," in historical perspective and outlines problems Augustine faced in trying to reconcile Christian faith with the legitimate demands of civic life. --Alan R. Perreiah, "Teaching Philosophy"

Brilliantly organized. I particularly like the brief introductions before each section which help to set the context of each piece. --Brian Caza, Georgetown College
