Reviews:

“A scholar’s edition at a student price!”
     —Harvey Mansfield, Harvard University

 

“Plainly the best edition of Leviathan. Superbly edited and indexed, with footnote passages from the Latin edition, a helpful glossary, biographical and autobiographical material, and a translation of Hobbes on the Nicene Creed, it will be an indispensable study tool. Curley’s introduction is masterly.”
     —Jerome Schneewind, Johns Hopkins University

 

"The translation of Latin variants and the index of Biblical citations mark this off as by far the best edition of the Leviathan.”
     —Thomas Pangle, University of Toronto

 

"Your edition of Leviathan is the best I’ve seen—the critical apparatus and the indices are very helpful. The price is right, and the binding and printing are very good.”
     —David O’Hara, Pennsylvania State University

 

"This is a splendid edition.”
     —Paul Nelson, Middlebury College
