Immanuel Kant’s views on politics, peace, and history have lost none of their relevance since their publication more than two centuries ago. This volume contains a comprehensive collection of Kant’s writings on international relations theory and political philosophy, superbly translated and accompanied by stimulating essays.
Pauline Kleingeld provides a lucid introduction to the main themes of the volume, and three essays by distinguished contributors follow: Jeremy Waldron on Kant’s theory of the state; Michael W. Doyle on the implications of Kant’s political theory for his theory of international relations; and Allen W. Wood on Kant’s philosophical approach to history and its current relevance.

Pauline Kleingeld is professor of philosophy, Leiden University, The Netherlands. David L. Colclasure is assistant professor and head of the German Studies Program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies. Michael W. Doyle is Harold Brown Professor at Columbia University in the School of International and Public Affairs and Columbia Law School. Jeremy Waldron is University Professor and director of the Center for Law and Philosophy, Columbia University. Allen W. Wood is Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods Professor at Stanford University.

"A handful of Kant's best-known texts are accompanied by a new intro by Pauline Kleingeld, who also edited the volume, and a trio of scholarly essays. Nice for the price."—Library Journal

"Kleingeld's introduction and the three fine essays that accompany selections from Kant's texts provide useful contextual information for students of politics and philosophy. . . . Kleingeld's new edition of Kant's writings on politics, peace, and history will help a new generation of students and teachers think through the relationship between ethics and politics."—Elisabeth H. Ellis, Ethics
