A bold new interpretation of Aristotelian thought is central to Bernard Yack's provocative new book. He shows that for Aristotle, community is a conflict-ridden fact of everyday life, as well as an ideal of social harmony and integration. From political justice and the rule of law to class struggle and moral conflict, Yack maintains that Aristotle intended to explain the conditions of everyday political life, not just, as most commentators assume, to represent the hypothetical achievements of an idealistic "best regime." By showing how Aristotelian ideas can provide new insight into our own political life, Yack makes a valuable contribution to contemporary discourse and debate. His work will excite interest among a wide range of social, moral, and political theorists.

"Often thought in the modern world to be completely unrelated, even antithetical to the restoration of a just society, the restoration of morality and widespread direct ownership of the means of production go hand-in-hand, as moral authorities through the ages have recognized. The problems facing modern society cannot be solved and the natural moral law restored except through the action of ordinary people organizing for the common good. Further, ordinary people will never have the power to organize effectively until

"Yack does a marvelous job of disentangling Aristotle's thought from contemporary communitarianism and of demonstrating how for Aristotle conflict can coexist with community. . . . A well-written, bold book that flings open the doors and lets some sunlight into a very musty room."—William Galston, Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy "An ingenious, provocative, exciting reinterpretation of Aristotle. . . . Yack's insights make this one of the most valuable things to appear on Aristotle's political thought in many years."—Harvey Goldman, author

Art and politics are often regarded as denizens of different realms, but few artists have been comfortable with the notion of a purely aesthetic definition of art. The artist has a public and thus political vision of the world interpreted by his art no less than the statesman and the legislator have a creative vision of the world they wish to make. The sixteen original essays in this volume bear eloquent witness to this interpenetration of art and politics. Each
