Review quote

This is an extremely detailed and learned work which scholars of Aristotle's Politics and those interested in the question of political authority will find enormously valuable. * Cathal Woods, Polis: The Journal of the Society for Greek Political Thought * Rosler's arguments are lucid and his writing is eloquent, occasionally humorous, and always pleasant. I have no doubt that Rosler's school of thought will delight over the new addition to the literature * Ran Baratz, Bryn Mawr Classical Review * Rosler's thoroughly researched and well-argued study amply demonstrates, as it set out to do, that those scholars who think Aristotle was totally blind to them [sc. the questions of political authority and obligation] are wrong * David Keyt, Journal of Hellenic Studies * This is an impressively learned and genuinely interdisciplinary book * C. C. W. Taylor, International Philosophical Quarterly * a well-written and convincingly argued book * George Boys-Stones, Greece and Rome *
