about

The major text begins by surveying the classical theories of the state. The core chapters then address the dominant pluralist and post-pluralist approaches to understanding the modern liberal democratic state, the main critiques from feminism, new elitism, green theory, neo-conservatism, and the challenges of globalization and postmodernism.
JOHN S. DRYZEK is Professor of Social and Political Theory in the Political Science Program, Research School of Social Sciences, Australian National University.   PATRICK DUNLEAVY is Professor of Political Science and Public Policy Chair at the London School of Economics and Politics Science, UK.
