An annotated and modified version of the translation published by Aris and Phillips Ltd.
A model of accuracy and fluency, Christopher Rowe's translation of Statesman--as modified for publication in Plato, Complete Works (Hackett Publishing Co., 1997)--is now available in a student edition, with a brief introduction, notes, and a select bibliography.
"The original publication of Rowe's translation in 1995 was a landmark event in the study of this fascinating but enigmatic dialogue. Based on a careful and convincing revised Greek text, the contemporary English of this unpretentious, clear, and -- above all -- accurate version makes it by far the best available. In fact, Rowe's translation is now and will surely remain the only acceptable choice." -- John Cooper, Stuart Professor of Philosophy, Princeton University.
