The unabridged version of this definitive work is now available as a highly designed paperback with flaps with a new introduction by Odysseus Makridis. Part of the Knickerbocker Classics series, a modern design makes this timeless book a perfect travel companion.

Published around 380 BCE, Plato's most famous work explores the idea of justness, among other things, through a Socratic dialogue. Considered to be one of the most influential writings in the development of Western philosophy and political theory, Republic is as relevant today as when it was originally published. 

The Knickerbocker Classics bring together the works of classic authors from around the world in stunning gift editions to be collected and enjoyed. Complete and unabridged, these elegantly designed cloth-bound hardcovers feature a slipcase and ribbon marker, as well as a comprehensive introduction providing the reader with enlightening information on the author's life and works.
