Summary: A lively new translation of Rousseau's best-known work, accompanied by additional political writings ''Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains'' are the famous opening words of Jean-Jacques Rousseau'sSocial Contract, a work of political philosophy that has stirred vigorous debate ever since its publication in 1762. Rejecting the view that anyone has a natural right to sovereignty, Rousseau argues instead for a pact-a ''social contract''-that should exist amon
g all the citizens of a state and that should be the source of governing power. From this premise, he goes on to consider issues of liberty and justice, arriving at a view of society that has seemed to some a blueprint for totalitarianism, to others a declaration of democratic principles.
