The Laws of Plato book cover
The Laws of Plato:
Translated, with notes and a book-length interpretive study
1979

By far superior to any translation available.... Pangle's translation captures the excitement and the drama of Plato's text.
-Ancient Philosophy
Pangle's achievement is remarkable.... The accompanying interpretive essay is an excellent distillation of a dialogue three times its size. The commentary is thoughtful, even profound; and it amply demonstrates the importance of reading Plato carefully and from a translation that is true to his language.
-American Political Science Review
This new translation of the Laws is very badly needed. It is as remarkable for its clarity and vigor as it is for the brilliance of its penetration of the original Greek.
