Reflections on Aristotle’s Politics (Copenhagen: Museum Tusculanum Press, 2013), vii + 127 pp. $35.00. isbn 9788763540629. This book contains eight articles by Hansen on Aristotle’s Politics , of which all but one have been published before. The articles have been updated and revised, of course, but the main reason for republishing is to make more accessible to Aristotelian scholars writings that appeared in places that such scholars would ordinarily have little interest in. A fair enough justification, and one that others have used, and rightly, from time to time. The articles range, in bulk, from the substantive to the slight, but some of the slight ones are greater in significance. A case in point is ‘ Polis , Politeuma and Politeia : a Note on Arist. Pol . 1278b5-14’, which nicely unties the complexity of the Greek. It pays close attention to ambiguities in syntax and to the varying abstract or concrete connotations of the key terms. Hansen’s argument is persuasive and his proposed translation one I would have adopted earlier myself had I known. Not that anyone’s previous mis-translating of this passage has interfered much with our general understanding either of it or of the larger context,
