Description - Political Ideas in Modern Britain by Rodney Barker

Political thinking in the western world has undergone dramatic changes in the late stages of the twentieth century, particularly with the recent rise of the New Right and the collapse of state communism in 1989. The world of the old orthodoxies of conservatism and socialism has come to an end and new concepts and titles, different labels, and different explanatory patterns are needed for new times. Rodney Barker's Political Ideas in Modern Britain: In and After Twentieth Century is a provocative and stimulating guide to political thinking in the United Kingdom since the 1880s. Spanning the development of political thought from Morris to market socialism, from communism to communitarianis, from fascism to feminism, this study shows how contemporary political thinking is both rooted in traditional political thought and a radical transformation of it. Whether the future is liberal, communitarian, pluralist, or simply uncertain, this fully revised and extended edition of Rodney Barker's best-selling textbook is an essential guide to the changing intellectual landscape of political thinking.
