Political Ideologies by Matthew Festenstein
Book DescriptionPolitical Ideologies: A Reader and Guide provides an extensive collection of extracts from the texts of major intellectuals, politicians, and writers within some of the most important ideological traditions in modern politics, which are interspersed with editorial commentaries. These offer a general historical introduction to each thinker and the particular text, highlight key thematic features of the passages and alert the reader to significant overlaps and points of difference between different authors within and across different ideological traditions. This is the first volume to provide such an extensive range of texts and to cover both established and newer political ideologies. The volume illustrates the complex evolution of ideological traditions in various national settings and highlights how these developed through rival interpretations of some of the key concepts of modern political discourse.
