Overview

Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal is a comprehensive look at the 21st century’s major political ideologies, their origins, and their development.

Using an analytical framework that promotes systematic comparison of political ideologies, this text helps students understand ideologies like a political scientist and learn that ideas have real consequences. Used on its own or with a companion reader like Ideals and Ideologies, Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal focuses students on critical rather than dogmatic thinking and on becoming open-minded thinkers better able to defend their political beliefs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Far and away, Ball and Dagger provide the best introduction to political ideologies. They show how ideologies shape the way individuals understand the world and how thought and action are connected. Their books do not simply describe ideologies, but explain how they work–a real boon for those trying to teach political ideologies or trying to better understand them.”–Daniel I. O’Neill, University of Florida
