Review quote

"Baradat's Political Ideologies is one of the best texts available for an introductory course in Comparative Politics in terms of its treatment of the historical development of various ideologies, the key theorists identified with each, and its attempt to incorporate more contemporary elements. It is clearly written and well organized using examples whenever possible to make ideologies more tangible to students. It does not assume previous knowledge but is not elementary in explaining the basics. The range of topics covered by the text is extensive." -- Tricia Mulligan, George Washington Universityshow more
