Political Ideas in Modern Britain by Rodney Barker
Book DescriptionThe rise of the New Right and the collapse of state communism in 1989 has fundamentally changed political thinking in the late twentieth century. Rodney Barker has revised and extended his classic text - Political Ideas in Modern Britain - in the light of these changes. His accessible account of political thinking in Britain since the 1880s now includes detailed analysis of: * the demise of traditional conservatism and socialism * the rise and decline of the New Right * the growth of feminism, liberalism and pluralism Political Ideas in Modern Britain charts the changing intellectual landscape of political thinking, illustrating how contemporary political thought is both rooted in tradition and a radical transformation of it. Whether the future is liberal, communitarian, pluralist, or simply uncertain, this is an essential guide for students of British politics. Rodney Barker is Senior Lecturer in Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Making Enemies, Hardback (December 2006)
Whom a prime minister or president will not shake hands with is still more noticed than with whom they will. Public identity can afford to be ambiguous about friends, but not about enemies. Barker examines the accounts of how enmity functions in the cultivation of identity, how essential or avoidable it is, and what the global consequences are.
Legitimating Identities, Hardback (October 2001)
This book discusses how rulers cultivate their identity for their own self-justification and esteem.
Political Theory and Political Action, Paperback (December 2000)
From foreign policy to environmental protection, from gender equality to the rule of law, politics is constructed by thinking. This book reflects a growing recognition of political thinking as a dimension, perhaps the single most important dimension, of the activity of politics in the contemporary world, and in all previous worlds as well.
