About Melissa Lane

Melissa Lane teaches politics at Princeton University, and previously taught for fifteen years at Cambridge University. She is also a fellow of the Royal Historical Society. The Times Literary Supplement said that in her book Eco-Republic 'Lane succeeds wonderfully not only in separating the useful in Plato from the useless, but also in demonstrating that the useful contains a surprising amount of what we need if we are to survive.'
