The Spirit of Laws
The Spirit of Laws cover image
In "The Spirit of the Laws" by Montesquieu, the author explores the principles of governance and the separation of powers in a just society.

This influential work laid the foundation for modern political theory, advocating for the importance of checks and balances to protect individual freedoms and maintain a stable government.
