William L. Newman (1834-1923) published Volume 1 of Politics of Aristotle in 1887. It was designed as an introductory volume to accompany volumes 2-4 (1887-1902) which contain Newman's reconstructed Greek text of the Politics with a commentary, notes and essays. The essays in this volume link Aristotle's political teaching to his philosophical system and metaphysical ideas, discuss the relationship of Politics to Plato's political treatises, and place Politics within the context of the wider tradition of Greek literature. The volume focuses on books 1, 3, 4 and 5 of the Politics as these, Newman argues, contain the core of Aristotle's political teaching. Newman, both as a scholar and pedagogue, had a significant impact on nineteenth-century classical studies. His four-volume edition of the Politics stands as a monument of Victorian scholarship and will continue to be read and studied by scholars and students of Aristotle.
