Political Ideologies provides an extensive collection of extracts from the texts of major intellectuals, politicians, and writers who represent some of the most important ideological traditions in modern politics. The first volume to provide such an extensive range of texts and to cover both established and newer political ideologies, it illustrates the complex evolution of ideological traditions in various national settings and highlights how these traditions developed. Accompanying editorial commentaries offer a general historical introduction to each thinker and text; highlight key thematic features of the passages; and point out significant overlaps and areas of contention between different authors within and across various traditions.
