Celebrating its fiftieth year in publication, Great Political Thinkers is an indispensable text for all students of political philosophy. This text contains portions of great works in their original form to wet the appetite and to encourage discussion within classroom. By providing historical context and current scholarship, Alan Ebenstein builds upon the framework of influences that have shaped current political theory or political philosophy courses usually found in the political science department.
