Description - Political Ideologies: Their Origins and Impact by Leon P. Baradat
Comprehensive yet accessible, this classic text, now in its thirteenth edition follows the evolution of political thought over 300 years. Organized chronologically, this text examines each ideology within a political, historical, economic, and social context. In addition to a thorough updating of examples and data, here's what you'll find in the new edition:
- Analyses of President Trump's rollback of Obamacare, trade war with China, and changes to immigration, taxation, and environmental policy.
- Conservative justifications for supply-side economics and liberal rationale for drug legalization and "trigger-word" bans.
- Brexit's effects on the Scottish independence movement.
- Resurgence of feminist protest, including the Me Too movement, alongside anarchist protest, following Trump's election, including groups like Black Bloc and Antifa.
- China's rising environmental and social problems, including unrest among its heavily controlled Uighur population.
- Cuba's transfer of power from the Castros to President Diaz-Canel, and their fraught rapprochement with the U.S.
- Russia's disinformation campaigns, and alternating brinksmanship and detente between Trump and North Korea's Chairman Kim Jong-un.
- The ascent of the Alt-right in the U.S., and white supremacist influence on parties in the U.S. and Europe.
- The continuing salience of Islamism, the teetering Iran deal, and ongoing degeneration of the Arab Spring to the Islamist Winter.
