Since its initial publication 35 years ago, CONTEMPORARY POLITICAL IDEOLOGIES: A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS has been the leading text in the field. This text successfully introduces readers to current and emerging political ideologies--offering a comparative analysis of nationalism, democracy, Marxism, and Islam, as well as an effective introduction to the lesser-known ideologies surrounding environmentalism, feminism, and liberation theology. The goal is to help readers draw their own conclusions about each ideology. To this end, the author makes every effort to present a balanced presentation of the ideologies covered in the text, and to objectively discuss the way that ideology functions today.

Review:

"I see the text as providing accounts of all the ideologies one would want to cover in such a courseâ€â€the text is certainly comprehensive . . . I like, too, both the comparative perspective and the 'current trends' sections in each chapter which try briefly to explain to students the continuing relevance of the ideologies in the present-day world. Finally, I like the balanced presentation provided for each of the ideologies, i.e., the fact that the ideologies are treated in a more or less objective fashion while emphasizing the perspective of adherents rather than critics."

"One of the beauties of this work is that it is a very reasonable length for what it intends to accomplish."
