it was amazing
Recommended to Anu by: My International Relations Professor
Recommended for: Everyone

I had been appointed to do a presentation on Thomas Hobbes, and the funny thing is that I had to read this freaking over 700-page book in less than a week. But still I ended up really enjoying it; plus the presentation went well, I think…

The whole work consists of 4 books on different matters:
- Book One: Of Men
- Book Two: Of Commonwealth
- Book Three: Of Christian Commonwealth
- Book Four: Of the Kingdom of Darkness

All the books were really interestingly detailed , all the chapters are concentrated on a single matter, and anyone would be thrilled to illustrate on your Philosophy class or Politics class by Thomas Hobbes, who was living during the 30-year-war between 1618 and 1648, and he had a first hand experience.

Recommended for anyone over … well anyone who is or will be in college soon.
