The Social Contract (Penguin Classics) by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Paperback, 1968)

The Social Contract (Penguin Classics) by Jean-Jacques Rousseau (Paperback, 1968) 'Man was born free and he is everywhere in chains'These are the famous opening words of a treatise that has not ceased to stir vigorous debate since its first publication in 1762 Rejecting the view that anyone has a natural right to wield authority over others Rousseau argues instead for a pact or 'social contract' that should exist between all the citizens of a state and that should be the source of sovereign power From this fundamental premise he goes on to consider issues of liberty and law freedom and justice arriving at a view of society that has seemed to some a blueprint for totalitarianism to others a declaration of democratic principles
