9780198294146: Ideologies and Political Theory: A Conceptual Approach

Ideologies play a crucial role in the way we understand and shape the political world. However, no one has been able to explain the nature of ideologies themselves. In this important new book, Freeden offers a ground-breaking approach to the subject. Drawing on the political experience of Britain, France, Germany, and the USA over the last two hundred years, the author provides an in-depth examination of all the key political ideologies: liberalism, conservatism, socialism, feminism, and green political thought.

About the Author:

Michael Freeden is at Mansfield College, Oxford.

Review:

`This is a large, ambitious and very rewarding book. It supplies a comprehensive survey of the central political ideologies of the past two centuries ... The approach is immensely illuminating ... The outstanding merit of Freeden's work is that he has shown what political philosophy presently
lacks, and has done so by demonstrating that ideologies should not be dismissed as merely the 'poor cousins' of philosophies. Both political theory and political philosophy have a great deal to learn from this book'
David Archard, Radical Philosophy, 1997

`This is an important work that deserves a wide audience ... helpful in explaining the significant ideological changes that have occurred within the British political scene in the last two decades. It is also ... a contribution to narrowing the gap between the academic and the popular.'
Political Quarterly

`What is attractive about Freeden's account is the eclecticism which his preliminary discussion recommends. Though he goes to considerable lengths to specify and anatomize the object of his enquiry, this does not preclude, but requires, a breadth of variety of approach and an awareness of a
multiplicity of contextual factors ... he is never uninteresting, or less than impressively widely informed ... he has written a hugely useful and stimulating book, which it will be possible not only to read with enormous pleasure and excitement, but to return to for frequent conversational and
argumentative engagements.'
Rodney Barker, LSE, Twentieth Century British History, Vol 10, no 1, 1999

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Ideologies play a crucial role in the way we understand and shape the political world. But no one has yet satisfactorily explained the nature of ideologies themselves. In this important study, Michael Freeden offers a ground-breaking approach to the subject. Drawing on the political experience of Britain, France, Germany, and the USA over the past two centuries, the author provides an in-depth examination of the key political ideologies: liberalism, conservatism, socialism, feminism, and green political thought. He goes on to outline a powerful and sophisticated new theory of ideologies and argues that by paying special attention to the complexity, conceptual inter-relationship, and historical and contemporary context of ideologies we can both better understand them and reinvigorate the study of political theory. From reviews of the hardback: What is on offer here is both a highly original and profoundly stimulating analysis of ideological thinking. Freeden s book will undoubtedly shape and redefine the field of ideological studies as it presently stands, initiating fruitful lines of research for many years to come.There is much to admire in this book.
