Rousseau's The Social Contract is one of the most important works of political thought in the history of philosophy. Since its publication in 1762, it has been profoundly influential in shaping the historical developments of many societies and remains sharply relevant today. In Rousseau's 'The Social Contract': A Reader's Guide, Chris Wraight offers a clear and thorough account of Rousseau's work, a detailed review of the key themes and a lucid commentary that will allow readers to rapidly navigate the text. The book explores all the important ideas inherent in the text and provides a cogent survey of its reception and influence. Wraight highlights how the central themes are relevant today, both to current philosophical debate and wider current affairs. Geared towards the specific requirements of students coming to Rousseau's work for the first time, this is the ideal companion to the study of this most unique and influential of texts.
