Aristotle's Politics is a key document in Western political thought. In these first two books Aristotle shows his complete mastery of political theory and practice, and raises many crucial issues still with us today. In Book I he argues vigorously for a political theory based on 'nature'. By nature, man is a 'political animal', one naturally fitted for life in a polis or state. Some people, however, are natural slaves; and women are by nature subordinate to men. Acquisition and exchange are natural, but not trading for profit.

Jorius
If you like to read the acerbic [but mostly true] wickedly-witty snarky things the worlds greatest writers think and say and write about each other-- this book is for you.

Very well done and lots 'o fun!
Gamba
Pretty funny collection of insults from one writer about another. Some of them are sharply on point, others just mean-spirited. Ezra Pound comes across as a boor, which I guess he was. Oscar Wilde features prominently. Not enough from Gore Vidal, but to be fair, most of those quoted are long since dead.
Bodwyn
James Charlton's marvelously wicked collection of the cattiest, sharpest, wittiest criticisms of writers by writers is a hoot! The book is chocked to the brim with quote after quote of brilliantly crafted--if barbarous--quips about some of our most celebrated writers. If you've ever wondered what was so great about a particular author, you're not alone!
You'll laugh a lot (and often wince) when you read this book. There's hardly a dull quotation!
Mala
I was almost happy to see how little this terrific book sells for; now I get to hang on to my copy of it! How can so many book readers resist "over 400 put-downs, backbites, & civil leers from the poisoned pens pens of great writers"? Snap it up!
