About the Authors
  • Hobbes' Leviathan is arguably the greatest piece of political philosophy written in the English language. Since its first publication, Richard Tuck's edition of Leviathan has been recognized as the single most accurate and authoritative text, and for this revised edition Professor Tuck has provided a much-amplified and expanded introduction. Other vital study aids include an extensive guide to further reading, a note on textual matters, a chronology of important events and brief biographies of important persons mentioned in Hobbes' text.

    • This is probably the greatest work of political philosophy in English
    • Ours is the single most authoritative text available; over 22,000 copies of the first edition were sold. It is also the most accessible for students
    • It is edited by one of the most renowned Hobbes scholars in the world, newly appointed to a chair at Harvard University
