Selections from the most important works of eleven of the greatest political theorists. This compact text is comprised of chapters from the more comprehensive anthology, GREAT POLITICAL THINKERS: FROM PLATO TO THE PRESENT.


This is an abridgement of , presenting the work of 12 major thinkers from Plato onward, including Aristotle, St. Thomas Aquinas, Hobbes, and Marx. Chapters here are exactly as they appear in ; only the number of chapters is abridged. Each thinker is critically analyzed and placed in his historical context, and a key reading is presented. For this second edition, a new chapter on 20th-century political thinker Fredrich Hayek has been added, and there are significant revisions to the chapters on Mill and Rawls. This reader lacks a subject index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
