Political theory has been traditionally confined to the history of Western political thought from Aristotle to Nietzsche, but this limitation is not tenable in a global age. This text focuses on Islamic, Indian and Far Eastern civilizations, offering readings of classical teachings and contemporary theoretical developments.
