From the Author
The Social Contract by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
The social contract came to me when I was fairly young, living in Geneva. It is unlike a convential book, which may take a few years to write, in that that it was in the making throughout my entire life.
If you find some of the ideas are not to your liking, then I make no excuse for them. They are my own so I cannot disown them. We can do only that which we think to be right.
The Social Contract lays out my view of soceity, and how I feel it should be
Jean Jacques Rousseau,

The reading is not easy and one must really make an effort to read this book as the ideas are densely packed.
I have read this book when I was very young and just read it again and it has lost nothing of his power.
