Robert Mayhew offers a penetrating examination of Aristotle's critique of Plato's utopian constitution. He casts valuable new light on the major issues: in what way and to what extent should the state be one? what is the proper relation of the individual to the state? is communism preferable, or should property and families remain private? Professor Mayhew's analysis reveals the power and continuing relevance of Aristotle's thought. -- Fred D. Miller, Jr., Bowling Green State University
