Most widely held works by Ernest Barker
The Politics of Aristotle by Aristotle( Book )

146 editions published between 1946 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Politics is one of the most influential texts in the history of political thought, and it raises issues which still confront anyone who wants to think seriously about the ways in which human societies are organized and governed." "The work of one of the world's greatest philosophers, it draws on Aristotle's own knowledge of the political and constitutional affairs of the Greek cities. By examining the way societies are run - from households to city states - Aristotle establishes how successful constitutions can best be initiated and upheld." "For this edition Sir Ernest Barker's fine translation, which has been widely used for nearly half a century, has been extensively revised to meet the needs of the modern reader."--Jacket

Every Greek thinker of whom we have any distinct report up to, and including, Plato is taken in review, his teaching is analyzed and discussed his worth both absolutely and relatively in his era. The Saturday Review says of the author, "he writes a clear style free from the pedantry of needless long words; and further, he writes as a man moving in the world of today."--Page 4 of cover
The political thought of Plato and Aristotle by Ernest Barker( Book )

A clear and accurate exposition of Greek political thought. In addition to extensive, point-by-point discussions of the "Republic" and the "Politics", it provides critical examinations of the origin of these ideas in the Greek political experience and in the contributions of other thinkers (Socrates and the pre-Socratics; Heraclitus, Pythagoras and other Sophists; the Cyrenaics; the Encyclopaedists); full coverage of Aristotle's "Ethics" and of the most crucial of the Platonic "Dialogues"; and considerations of how Greek ideas were later modified by Aquinas, Marsilio of Padua, Machiavelli, Spinoza, Hobbes, Rousseau and Hegel.
