This is an extremely welcome second edition of F.J. Sheed's 1944 translation, which is both close to the original in wording and style (unlike, say, the Chadwick or the Pinecoffin translations) and yet a fine piece of English (unlike the 19th-century translations I have seen). This new edition has several advantages over the original 1944 edition: very few changes have been made to the text, but it includes both sets of chapter numbers (the omission of one set in Sheed was a major drawback), useful notes and index, and a magisterial introduction by Peter Brown, the 'doyen' of Augustine and late antique studies in the English-speaking world. This is surely the best English edition of the work to date.
