About this title


This important new book presents a lucid introduction to political thought from Socrates to the present. It successfully marries the hitherto diverse traditions of history and theory in the search for political understanding. Political theorists share in common an attempt to reveal the reality which underlies the world of politics. Is there a key to unlock the mysteries of politics? And if there is, what impact does this have on morality? Is politics a separate world or one which should serve a moral purpose? By examining major thinkers both in the context of their own time and their relevance to the present, the book shows how political theory can be applied to major controversies in the 20th century. Political Theory in Retrospect makes an important contribution to historical discussion and philosophical analysis. It successfully integrates political theory into the study of modern politics.
