This Eleventh Edition continues the text's tradition of successfully introducing readers to current and emerging political ideologies. Sargent offers a comparative analysis of nationalism, democracy, Marxism, and Islam, as well as an effective introduction to the lesser known ideologies surrounding environmentalism, feminism, and liberation theology. The result is a complete examination of how political ideologies affect the way people think and governments act.

Review:

"I . . . like the organization of the text by topic and within chapters by variants of each primary ideology."

"I like the culturally and philosophically inclusive, pluralistic, and non-Eurocentric perspective of the book as well as the author's effort for gender inclusiveness."

"For an introduction, I believe CPI is superior to almost every other text at the level it seeks to reach."
