Summary

Political Theory presents a unique blend of selections from both classic and contemporary works in political theory. In two volumes, Political Theory covers key works in the history of political though from Thucydidies to Machiavelli (Volume One) and from Machiavelli to Rawls (Volume Two). Beyond the traditional canon, Political Theory also included works by such theorists as Christine de Pizan, Mary Wollstonecraft, Simone de Beauvoir, and Hannah Arendt. This modular, two-volume format will appeal both to instructors who want their students to read the classics as well as courses centered more on recent commentaries by scholars.
The core of each chapter is a primary source selection from a noted theorist, prefaced by a discussion of the theorist's continuing relevance to the study of political science. After each follows a readable scholarly commentary on the argument and ideas presented, as well as the significance of the theorist's ideas to understanding political life.

The new edition offers several noteworthy features:

  • Expanded historical and biographical introductions.
  • New commentaries reflecting the latest scholarship.
  • Helpful summaries of the selections from classic works and contemporary commentaries.
  • Internet resources for students.
  • Suggestions for class discussion and activities.
