Description

Sargent's reader fills a gap in the field of ideologies: it is the only book that compiles primary source material analyzing and expounding on ideologies. Using much the same organization as his successful core text on the same subject ( Contemporary Political Ideologies: A Comparative Analysis, soon to be published in an Eighth edition), Sargent provides students with selections of two types: original statements by believers in an ideology and interpretive analyses by acclaimed scholars. This book will prove useful to any one who wishes to expose students to primary source documents to improve their understanding of how ideologies develop and why they continue to be a driving force in the world of politics. This book should be of interest to undergraduate courses in comparative politics.show more
