Editorial Reviews

"In general, the information presented is accessible and straightforward, with a good combination of historical and theoretical discussion. I like the inclusion of nontraditional political thinkers, the use of various authors and intellectuals, such as Tolstoy and Huxley, along with thetreatment of standard political thinkers such as Rawls and Kymlicka." --Joanne Wright, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton
