Thornton Lockwood and Thanassis Samaras have now added another to the number. They themselves point out that in the English-speaking world alone some 30 books (including several translations) and hundreds of articles have been published since the 1980s. We should of course be glad that the Stagirite’s reflections on politics are receiving serious attention. But, one may ask, are not the existing publications enough? In one sense yes (how much that is new or interesting can one still say?); in another sense no. Aristotle’s writings are so rich and concentrated that probably any reader will find something else to draw attention to. In the book in question, Lockwood and Samaras have collected 12 essays which cover more or less all the books of the Politics: Jill Frank on logos and politics in Aristotle, Pierre Pellegrin on politics as a natural science, Marguerite Deslauriers on rule over women, Lockwood on political critique, theorizing, and innovation in Politics book 2, John Mulhern on the term ‘politeia’, Ryan Balot on
