Product Reviews


‘Pete Woodcock has moved introductory texts two steps forwards with this “big questions” textbook. He grounds political theory in politics, making it relevant to the issues citizens actually confront. This book will reward not only students of political theory, but anyone who wants to think politically.

’Russell Bentley, University of Southampton ‘Woodcock’s book is well written, provides clear summaries and descriptions of the relevant political theories, and is supplemented by helpful text boxes. Descriptions of the philosophers are very engaging and enhanced by real-world examples that students can readily identify with.

’Elissa B. Alzate, Winona State University
