Description

Political Ideologies: A Reader and Guide provides an extensive collection of extracts from the texts of major intellectuals, politicians, and writers within some of the most important ideological traditions in modern politics, which are interspersed with editorial commentaries. These offer a general historical introduction to each thinker and the particular text, highlight key thematic features of the passages and alert the reader to significant overlaps and
points of difference between different authors within and across different ideological traditions.

This is the first volume to provide such an extensive range of texts and to cover both established and newer political ideologies. The volume illustrates the complex evolution of ideological traditions in various national settings and highlights how these developed through rival interpretations of some of the key concepts of modern political discourse.

Review quote

'The combination of lucid commentary and carefully selected extracts from primary sources makes this book an indispensable resource for students studying political ideologies' * Dr Steve Buckler, University of Birmingham * 'This is simply the best single reader on political ideologies. The texts are judiciously chosen, they cover all the relevant issues, and allow students to examine not just the historical origins of different ideologies, but their contemporary transformations as well' * Professor Pratap Mehta, Harvard University * Review from previous edition 'This is by far the best available anthology on political ideologies. It should be required reading for all courses on the topic' * Professor Michael Freeden, University of Oxford *
