In this major addition to the Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought series, Robert Dyson has translated texts by Aquinas that reflect the complete range of his thinking, and clearly show his development of a Christian version of the philosophy of Aristotle. His translations are supported by brief biographies, notes for further reading and a concise critical introduction.

    • Major new selection of principal political writings of perhaps the greatest medieval thinker
    • Robert Dyson's rendition in the CTPT series of Augustine: City of God already widely acclaimed
    • Numerous student-friendly features including accurate translations, notes for further reading and brief biographies of major figures
