Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Baron De Montesquieu

Narrated By: Wanda McCaddon

Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Date: August 2011

Duration: 22 hours 28 minutes

Summary:

Originally published in 1748, this is possibly the most masterful and influential book ever written on the subject of liberty and justice. Accordingly, it is a work that profoundly influenced America's Founding Fathers. Its success was due partly to the fact that it was the first systematic treatise on politics, partly to Montesquieu's championship of the nobility and the Parlements, but above all, to the brilliant style of his prose.

By the "spirit of the laws," Montesquieu means their raison d'ĂȘtre and the conditions determining their origin, development, and forms. Montesquieu discusses numerous topics, including the general functions of government, relations between the sexes, the morals and customs of the nation, economics and religion, and the theory of law and legislative practice.
