As we approach the end of the century and reflect on the continued turmoil and conflict that beset our world, it is imperative to think about where we are going and to reconsider the political philosophies that have shaped both our world and our sense of where we ought to be.Hudelson's book is a brief introduction to the major topics and issues in political philosophy from the Enlightenment to Postmodernism. Within the scope of ten short chapters, Hudelson presents both the historical background and a systematic discussion of contemporary issues relating to the major traditions within political philosophy, making this the ideal introduction to the topic for students and interested readers.CONTENTSPreface1.
