Second Treatise of Government

The "Second Treatise" is one of the most important political treatises ever written and of the most far-reaching in its influence. In his provocative 15-page introduction to this edition, the late eminent political theorist C. B. Macpherson examines Locke's arguments for limited conditional government, private property, and right of revolution and suggests reasons for the appeal of these arguments in Locke's time and since. "Macpherson provides for his readers a tightly written, meaty, and often invigorating critical assessment of Locke's argument. In it one finds some of the best of Macpherson's now famous criticism of liberal-democratic government." Gregory E. Pcyrz in Canadian Philosophical Review
