Product Reviews

Review

'An outstanding set of original papers that will be of great value to anyone interested in contemporary political theory. What is especially impressive about the books is the balance of essays on issues of domestic and international politics.

' Joshua Cohen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology'Something for everyone from the neophyte to the hardened professional. Especially valuable is the emphasis on the important and relatively neglected subject of international political morality.

' Brian Barry, London School of Economics'It is the great merit of David Held's collection that almost all the contributors feel the need to unite normative political philosophy with a theory of the political and social systems of modern states. They seek to illuminate and modify recent theories of rights and justice by applying them to a whole series of issues which have been marginalized or ignored by contemporary political philosophers.

' Times Higher Education Supplement'The core themes of this collection are more pressing than ever. Social and political theory have a real part to play in recasting societies and this volume is a valuable contribution towards that.

' Sociological Review'Political Theory Today is a scrupulously edited collection of original essays on representative themes in contemporary political theory. It is valuable and important in a number of ways. It will be widely used on courses. All of the essays are interesting, some of them outstandingly so.
