About the book:

 

Two works in one volume

 

Jean-Jacques Rousseau was the first, and the most eloquent and versatile, of that extraordinary line of radical modern thinkers who aimed their disenchantment at the very roots of the human social order and thereby forever reshaped the way we deal with one another. Of Rousseaus many contributions to the tradition he inaugurated, the one for which he is most revered and that makes these pages glow with conviction is his passionate indignation about anything that trammels individual freedom.

 

This revised edition of G. D. H. Coles celebrated translation includes an appendix of sections from the first manuscript draft of The Social Contract and the passage in Rousseaus novel Émile in which he summarizes its argument, along with Coles original preface, which has itself become a classic.

 

Translated by G. D. H. Cole

Revised and augmented by J. H. Brumfitt and John C. Hall
