This edition originally published in 1962. The problems of life and government which are still the central theme of the Republic are still with us but the views presented in it were the outcome of strenuous discussion and they come to the modern reader as a challenge. To get to the heart of them he must continue the discussion for himself and make his own applications. This book will help him on his way.
