Review of Metaphysics 52 (4):936-938 (1999)

This two-volume reference work attempts to bring together all of the notable essays on Hume’s political thought during this century, a whopping 59 pieces ranging in time from 1906 to 1995. The essays have not been reformatted but are rather facsimiles of the original versions, virtually all of which are gathered from journals. The overall shape of the volumes thus resembles something a graduate research assistant might produce, if in addition to a xerox machine he also had access to a good binder. The collection is intended, however, not merely for scholars without the benefit of assistants, but more importantly for those whose libraries do not subscribe to all the journals from which these articles are culled. This is an admirable goal; however the considerable price tag places a significant onus on the volumes to prove their worthiness.
