Description - The Political Theory of John Gray by John E. Horton
John Gray is one of today's most brilliant, bestselling and controversial political thinkers. This new collection examines him from a variety of stimulating angles. His work is much cited and discussed within political and social theory, but he also has a much wider audience, being one of those quite rare creatures in British academic life, a public intellectual, writing regularly for the quality press and appearing on both radio and TV. His books sell in large numbers. As evidence of this broader appeal outside academe, his recent book "Straw Dogs" (which reached the top five in "The Sunday Times" best seller list) was very widely reviewed in broadsheets and weeklies. It was extravagantly praised by Will Self and chosen by novelist, Monica Ali as her book of the year. This volume, comprising original contributions from a number of distinguished political theorists, in addition to a reply by Gray himself, will be the first book to review systematically the general significance of his work. It will be of immense interest to all those interested in current political theorising, and willing to think afresh about the political challenges facing the modern world.
