This collection of essays represents a fresh offering in Bloomsbury Press’s “Textual Moments in the History of Political Thought” series, an exciting new attempt to bring together a number of essays by experts on key texts in the history of political thought.
Most of the essays are on texts from the Reformation to the modern period, but there are some on antiquity. The first two are on, respectively, the Talmud and the Hebrew Bible.
