Written specifically for those coming to the work of Locke for the first time, The Routledge Philosophy Guidebook to Locke On Government is an invaluable guide to his political thought. Much of what has been written on the Second Treatise of Government has taken a history of ideas approach. This book is unique in looking at the philosophical aspects of Locke's political work. Paying particular attention to Locke's radical position and his advocacy of violent revolution against the tyranny of Charles II and James II, D.A. Lloyd shows how political authority can be based on consent. Written concisely and clearly like the other Routledge Philosophical Guidebooks, this book is an excellent introduction for the general reader and student of Locke. This critical book is an ideal introduction to one of the most important figures of political thought.
