[texhax] BibTeX query

Is there any way to enable BibTex to permit both the author and editor 
lines of a book entry to be used? I have found that many of the primary 
texts I want to cite need this functionality. For example, if I want to 
cite a particular edition of John Locke's _Two Treatises of 
Government_, I need to enter Locke as the author, but I also need to 
enter Peter Laslett as the editor of this particular edition. BibTeX 
won't allow me to do this (at least with the various .bst files I have 
tried). Can this restriction be overcome in some way? I haven't been 
able to find an answer to this anywhere online.

Thanks for the help.
