Originally published in 1960, this analysis of all
of Locke's publications quickly became established as the
standard edition of the Treatises as well as a work of political
theory in its own right.
From the Back Cover
John Locke laid the groundwork of modern liberalism.
He argued that political societies exist to defend the lives,
liberties, and properties of their citizens, and that no
government has any authority except by the consent of the people.
When rulers become tyrants and act against the common good, then
the people have a right of revolution against them. Writing
against the backdrop of Charles II's savage purge of the Whig
movement, Locke set out to attack monarchical absolutism and
demolished the intellectual fabric of the divine right of rulers.
