Editorial Reviews

"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 isunlikely that there will ever be another that can match this edition." --John Gray, New Statesman
