 "Taking full advantage of S. R. Slings' new Greek text of the Republic, Reeve has given us a translation both accurate and limpid. Loving attention to detail and deep familiarity with Plato's thought are evident on every page. Reeve's brilliant decision to cast the dialogue into direct speech produces a compelling impression of immediacy unmatched by other English translations currently available."
     —Lloyd P. Gerson, University of Toronto

 "Reeve's new translation can be highly recommended for its accurate and readable rendering of the original. . . . Those who read the Republic for the first time or for pleasure are sure to find this the most attractive and accessible translation currently available."
     —Naoko Yamagata, Journal of Classics Teaching

 "David Reeve's long and devoted engagement with Plato's Republic, evidenced in his highly-regarded revision of George Grube's translation, issues now in a completely new translation of his own. In this version, Socrates' narration of his conversation with Glaucon and Adeimantus et al. is converted so far as possible into dramatically gripping and effective direct speech. Its increased accessibility promises to make it the number-one choice for undergraduate courses."
     —John Cooper, Princeton University

 "Reeve's new translation of Plato's Republic will be of value both to students approaching the work for the first time and, and a handy version for the more advanced reader. The translation is solid, the format and scholarly apparatus make it very accessible."
     —Thomas Cooksey, The Classical Outlook

 "This edition is excellent. In particular, the separate glossaries for technical terms and names is extremely helpful for first time readers. . . . The general index facilitates critical writing as well. Reeve's convention of italicizing the narrative is also helpful. . . . This edition offers a complete package for initial forays into the Republic. And as usual, the cover art is both stimulating and wonderfully apropos."
