The first full-length study in English of Hegel's political philosophy. In order to present an overall view of the development of Hegel's political thinking the author has drawn on Hegel's philosophical works, his political tracts and his personal correspondence. Professor Avineri shows that although Hegel is primarily thought of as a philosopher of the state, he was much concerned with social problems and his concept of the state must be understood in this context.

'Anyone familiar with Avineri's splendid book on Marx will know what to expect here - great lucidity and readability, steady good sense, and a tremendous capacity for a sympathetic interpretation of his subject's intentions.' New Society 'This sober, learned and readable book is a good introduction for English-speaking readers to political writings by Hegel that still remain untranslated, and a lively reassessment of his political philosophy as a whole.' The Times Literary Supplement
