This new translation of the Treatise on Law offers fidelity to the Latin in a readable new version that will prove useful to students of the natural law tradition in ethics, political theory, and jurisprudence, as well as to students of Western intellectual history.
A convenient one-volume translation of the essential texts from the Summa Theologiae on law. Regan's translation is careful, idiomatic, and reliable. With its good Introduction and explanatory notes, this volume should prove to be a popular one among teachers and students of politics and ethics, not to mention those working in medieval philosophy. --Brian Davies, author of The Thought of Thomas Aquinas, Oxford, 1992
The best and most convenient English edition of this classic work. --James B. Murphy, Dartmouth College
Richard J. Regan is Professor of Political Science, Fordham University.
