    DescriptionIn this close examination of the social and political thought of Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.), Neal Wood focuses on Cicero's conceptions of state and government, showing that he is the father of constitutionalism, the archetype of the politically conservative mind, and the first to reflect extensively on politics as an activity.

    Review quote
    "Cicero's attraction for Neal Wood lies in his influence on later Western political philosophy--Augustine, Bodin, Locke, Montesquieu--and especially in his unashamed defense of private property and economic individualism as part of a theory of state (the contemporary relevance is patent)."--Andrew Lintott, "Times Higher Education Supplement
