Book Description:

Tracing the development of his thought and confronting his relationship with the Nazis, all of Nietzsche's major works are analyzed in detail, along with his key ideas, in this introduction to his politics. A chronology of his life and works is supplemented by a guide to further reading.

Review:

"This book provides a sound introduction to Nietzsche's political thought....Strongly recommended for undergraduates at all levels." Choice

"It is one of the singular merits of Ansell-Pearson's book that he not only explains cogently the ways in which Nietzsche is an important political thinker but also clarifies the stages of his development. Furthermore, the author furnishes a number of insightful criticisms of both Nietzsche and Nietzsche interpreters....Ansell-Pearson's book is a meritorious work that should be read and reflected upon, for it helps us to understand Nietzsche, as Nietzsche, Ansell-Pearson rightly remarks, helps us to understand the age in which we live." John Riser, European Studies Journal

"...highly accessible and engaging study of Nietsche's political philosophy..." International Studies in Philosophy

"An excellent introduction to Nietzche's thought, and a book to be welcomed as well by scholars in political theory, philosophy, and any field concerned about emancipatory politics." Religious Studies Review

"...compelling....in the breadth of its sweep..." New Nietzsche Studies
