Strauss's The Argument and the Action of Plato's 'Laws' reflects his interest in political thought, his dogged method of following the argument of the Laws step by step, and his vigorous defense of this dialogue's integrity in respect to the ideals of the Republic.--Cross Currents

The unique characteristics of this commentary on the Laws reflect the care and precision which were the marks of Professor Strauss's efforts to understand the complex thoughts of other men.--Allan D. Nelson, Canadian Journal of Political Science

Thorough and provocative, an important addition to Plato scholarship.--Library Journal

The major purpose of the commentary is to provide a reading of the dialogue which displays its structural arrangement and the continuity of the argument.--J. W. Dy, Bibliographical Bulletin of Philosophy

The reader of Strauss's book is indeed guided closely through the whole text.-- M. J. Silverthorne, The Humanities Association Review

Leo Strauss (1899-1973) was the Robert Maynard Hutchins Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of political science at the University of Chicago.
