"...In this volume, readers will find a Hobbes who had things to say about rights and equality, taxation, punishment, just war, and whether one has a right to fight for one's country. In other words, these essays, which are of a uniformly high caliber, seek to apply Hobbes's thought to contemporary issues.... This is an excellent anthology.... Highly recommended..."
–C.R. McCall, Elmira College, CHOICE
