'As a retrospective showcase of the work of a major scholar, this is impressive. Skinner's ability to combine political and philosophical insight with minute knowledge of several centuries of political literature is awe inspiring.' Robert Sugden, Times Higher Education Supplement ' ... this is a deeply impressive collection which displays Skinner's exceptional range.' The New York Review
