Ellen Meiksins Wood presents a survey of the canonical ancient and medieval political thinkers, from Plato and Aristotle through the Roman Republic and Empire to Thomas Aquinas and William of Ockham in the Middle Ages. She also integrates political theory and social history in a groundbreaking analysis of the development of these ideas by members or clients of dominant classes against the backdrop of complex interactions among proprietors, labourers and states.
