Natural Right and History is widely recognized as Strauss’s most influential work. The six essays collected here were written during Strauss’s New School period and show Strauss working toward the ideas he would present in the 1949 Walgreen Lectures and, later, in fully matured form in his landmark work. In them, he explores natural right and the relationship between modern philosophers and the thought of the ancient Greek philosophers, as well as the relation of political philosophy to contemporary political science and to major political and historical events, especially the Holocaust and World War II.

Previously unpublished, the essays are presented here in thematic order with an introduction and brief introductory and interpretative essays that establish their relation to Natural Right and History. Rounding out the book are copious annotations and notes to facilitate further study.
