Review:

Reeve has reworked the Grube translation thoroughly, raising the level of philosophical accuracy and updating the language, all the while retaining--and indeed enhancing--the celebrated readability of the Grube original. For a long time to come, Grube-Reeve will deservedly be the first choice of scholars and students alike. --John Cooper, Princeton University

C.D.C. Reeve has taken the excellent Grube translation and, without sacrificing accuracy, rendered it into a vivid and contemporary style. It is intensity that is often lost in translation, but not here. This is not just a matter of style. The "Republic" is full of brilliant thoughts, and one needs to preserve brilliance to capture them. In the cave of translations, Reeve s revision of Grube's "Republic" is closest to the sun. --Jonathan Lear, University of Chicago"
