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
