    We will discuss Charles Montesquieu's "The Spirit of Laws," Books: Book I - Of Laws In General. Book II - Of Laws Directly Derived From The Nature Of Government. Book III - Of The Principles Of The Three Kinds Of Government. Book IV - That The Laws Of Education Ought To Be In Relation To The Principles Of Government. The Spirit of the Laws (French: De l'esprit des lois, originally spelled De l'esprit des loix; also sometimes translated The Spirit of Laws) is a book published in by Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu. It is a book about law, comparing different ideas. The Books published by Montesquieu were subject to censorship. For this reason, the book was published Author: Montesquieu.

The latter half of Book 11 consists of observations concerning the separation of powers in different countries, beginning with England, whose government Montesquieu admires. Montesquieu traces the rise and fall of political liberty in ancient Rome alongside the separation and consolidation of political power.

Monsieur is Persian? That's most extraordinary! How can someone be Persian?' Two Persian travellers, Usbek and Rica, arrive in Paris just before the death of Louis XIV and in time to witness the hedonism and financial crash of the Regency.
