Synopsis

This exciting new textbook presents a clear framework for students to understand how themes and issues in political thought have emerged and developed throughout the 20th Century.





Charting the progression from the preoccupation with the boundaries of the modern state, through to the current debates on rights, identity and justice; the three sections of the book enable the ideas of significant political thinkers to unfold through a telling of the key political events that gave a social context for their thought:









Section I: The Inter-War Debate: Weber, Gramsci and Schmitt

Section II: Post-War Debates: Arendt, Oakeshott, De Beauvoir and Adorno

Section III: Contemporary Debates: Rawls, Nozick, Kymlicka and Foucault











Written in an accessible and concise format, features include:









'rewind' and 'fast-forward' indicators to easily guide students around the text

discussion points, revision notes and further reading in each chapter

informative text boxes to highlight key concepts, people and events.











By exploring an often ignored relationship in political thought, the influence of thought upon historical change and the influence of historical change upon theory, this text delivers new and exciting angles from which to approach politics today. Contemporary Political Theorists in Context is essential reading for all students of social and political theory.
