The aggressively revised new edition of this best-seller provides a clear, concise, and comprehensive introduction to the ideas and ideals that shake and shape our political world.
Written with the firm belief that ideology is the driving force of nation-states, history, and politics, this innovative text covers the range of contemporary political ideologies, from the standard categories of liberalism, conservatism, and socialism to newly emerging ideological alternatives. Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal provides an accessible overview of the origin and development of these ideologies, and illustrates how each interprets democracy and freedom.
From the Back Cover:
Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal
The new edition of this bestselling text continues to provide an accessible overview of the 21st century’s major political ideologies, their origins, and their development. In addition to examining the major “isms” — liberalism, conservatism, socialism, and fascism — the book explores the history, structure, supporting arguments, and internal complexities of these and recently emerging ideologies.
The text outlines a framework defining each ideology in terms of the four functions ideologies performs — explanation, evaluation, orientation, and political program — allowing students to compare, contrast, and analyze the various ideologies. In addition, the book also shows how each ideology interprets “democracy” (which the authors characterize as an ideal rather than an ideology) and “freedom.” In examining the latter notion, the authors analyze each ideology’s view of freedom in terms of agent, obstacle, and goal.
New to the Seventh Edition
A discussion of the cultural preconditions of democracy and of their relevance for recent attempts to “democratize” formerly undemocratic countries in Chapter 2.
Emerging tensions within liberalism regarding limits upon tolerating intolerant ideologies and political movements, especially as exemplified in recent European experience, in Chapter 3.
Emerging tensions within conservatism, especially between religious right conservatism and other varieties of conservative theory and practice, and between neoconservatism and its conservative critics in Chapter 4.
An entirely new discussion of Christian evangelical environmentalism or “Creation care” in Chapter 9.
Greatly expanded coverage of radical Islamism, including deep divisions within Islam, rival interpretations of the Qur’an, and whether it makes sense to speak of “Islamic fascism” or “Islamofascism” in Chapter 10.
