Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "While not unduly demanding even for 1st year undergraduates, the book is consistently thought-provoking, and demonstrates the relevance of political philosophy for an understanding of contemporary issues... All credit to the author, who emerges as the sort ofperson who would be welcome at anyone`s dinner party." --Mark Garnett, Lancaster University
