Montaigne's Politics:
Authority and Governance in the Essais
Biancamaria Fontana

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"[Montaigne's] political theory and practice are skillfully dissected by Biancamaria Fontana in Montaigne's Politics. . . . After reading this clear argument some scholars will have to change their minds. Good books always change minds. This is one. They also point up problems to consider further."--Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Montaigne's Politics offers a lucid overview of--and new insights into--Montaigne's political theory (and practice). It is well informed of Montaigne's Essais, the secondary literature, and the historical context."--Antoine Compagnon, Columbia University and the Sorbonne

"This well-conceived work valuably fills an important gap in the scholarship. The historical, contextual, and biographical material is substantial and illuminating. It covers a wide expanse of ground in great depth."--Michael Moriarty, Queen Mary, University of London
