Jarrett A. Carty offers an inspired collection of the most relevant political writings of Martin Luther into one volume. The volume offers a fascinating study to the history of political thought in the age of Reformation. It is something that contemporary scholars of the sixteenth-century political thought in general and of the Reformation in particular should read.
