Review:


"Political Philosophy is excellent. It presents a comprehensive point of departure for anyone interested in social and political philosophy. This is a must-read not just for undergraduates and graduates but also for anyone interested in political philosophy. Simmons's arguments are straightforward and subtle yet feisty and engaging."--Ajume H. Wingo, Harvard University
