Review:

'As there is no collection of Diderot's political writings available in English translation, this volume fills an obvious gap and will, one hopes, encourage further study of Diderot's contribution to political theory ... These texts are prefaced by an elegant introduction, and accompanied by a chronology, a useful guide to further reading and an ample index.' French History

Book Description:

This volume presents a selection of the political writings of one of the most significant figures of the French enlightenment. It contains the most important articles which Diderot contributed to the Encyclopedie, of which he was principal editor, the complete texts of his Supplement au Voyage de Bougainville and Observations sur le Nakaz (translated into English here for the first time), and a substantial number of his contributions to Raynal's Histoire des Deux Indes. The editors' introduction puts these works in context, showing their essential features and underlying coherence.
