Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
True to its title, this relatively brief but well-written and comprehensive book begins with the American Revolution and the theory of natural rights. From there, Hudelson (philosophy, Univ. of Wisconsin, Superior) outlines and analyzes the major movements in political philosophy from the Enlightenment to the late 20th century, including utilitarianism, anarchism, classical liberalism, socialism, and libertarianism. He briefly yet clearly touches upon the work of the major figures in each movement, and his chapter on global politics are particularly interesting. Also of special significance is Chapter 6, which opens with a discussion of utilitarian concepts of justice, proceeds to Kant's critique of utilitarianism, and ends with a discussion of John Rawls's seminal work, A Theory of Justice (1971). Recommended for all public and academic libraries.--Terry C. Skeats, Bishop's Univ. Lib., Lennoxville, Quebec Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
