Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Barry (social and political theory, U. of Buckingham) revises earlier editions published between 1981 and 1995 to emphasize such currently influential ideas as feminism and commutarianism rather than more traditional ideological approaches such as Marxism. He also adds a chapter on the theory of welfare and the welfare state, and a section on animals in the chapter about rights. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
