Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan is one of the most important philosophical texts in the English language, and one of the most influential works of political philosophy ever written. This is the first critical edition based on a full study of the manuscript and printing history. It is also the first edition to place the English text side by side with Hobbes's later Latin version of it, complete with a set of notes in which the many passages that differ in the Latin are translated into English. So, for the first time, readers of Leviathan will be able to see clearly every stage of the development of the text. Both texts are fully annotated with explanatory notes. This definitive edition will set the study of Hobbes's masterwork on a new basis.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition Everything about these three volumes is testimony to Malcolm's extraordinary scholarly range and precision. Just as impressive is the lucidity of Malcolm's own prose ... Specialists will find fresh insights on almost every page ... Malcolm's measured and gently sceptical style is a perfect complement to Hobbe's own extravagant scepticism * David Runciman, Times Literary Supplement *
[Malcolm] fluently and authoritatively sets Leviathan and its author in their time and provides a keen and detailed study of Leviathan's genesis. Malcolm's volume itself is an enduring work of history. * Ben Schwartz, The Atlantic *
Malcolm's edition of Leviathan aims to present the masterpiece as faithfully as possible. The result-a product of many years of labour-is an astonishing achievement of the highest scholarship. We have never before had so accurate and so richly annotated a version of the text, and it is unlikely that there will ever be another that can match this edition. * John Gray, New Statesman *
