The Theory of the Mixed Constitution in Antiquity: A Critical Analysis of Polybius' Political Ideas

Review of Metaphysics 9 (4):703-703 (1956)

A clearly argued judgment of Polybius' thought, in relation to Greek and Roman political history. The author is not concerned so much with criticism as with understanding, and the result is a book which illuminates basic problems of political theory and practice. In his conclusion, the author makes a sharp and searching criticism of the Hobbesean theory of sovereignty.--R. H.
