"This edition of the classic is very good. The translation is spot on, the size of the letters is standard and the book itself is small so very easy to transport with you wherever you go.
About the text, is very easy to read and understand the idea.
I will say is one of the most important books to read if you want to start understanding the basis of society." - Amazon Reviewer

In The Social Contract Rousseau (1712-1778) argues for the preservation of individual freedom in political society. An individual can only be free under the law, he says, by voluntarily embracing that law as his own. Hence, being free in society requires each of us to subjugate our desires to the interests of all, the general will.

Some have seen in this the promise of a free and equal relationship between society and the individual, while others have seen it as nothing less than a blueprint for totalitarianism. The Social Contract is not only one of the great defences of civil society, it is also unflinching in its study of the darker side of political systems.
