About the Author

QUENTIN SKINNER is Regius Professor of Modern History in the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Christ College.


'Quentin Skinner is one of the world's foremost historians of political thought ... 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.'
