Editorial Reviews

Zom Zoms
With this book, Benewick and Green enter the crowded fray of dictionaries of political biography. This year's "Oxford Companion to Politics of the World" [RBB My 1 93] includes entries on 100 political thinkers. Also recent are "Chambers Dictionary of Political Biography" 1991, "Great Political Thinkers" Oxford, 1992, and "The Economist Dictionary of Political Biography" 1991 What is unique about "Routledge"? The editors state that it is the only current dictionary of political biography that covers the Third World as well as the West, and that covers the "new movements based on ethnicity, gender and ecological concerns." Indeed, Third World theorists such as Frantz Fanon and Paulo Freire are included along with feminist thinkers and theorists on race. The editors identify three types of political thinkers: those that largely 1 do, 2 think, or 3 write. Some "doers," such as Ataturk, Castro, and the Ayatollah Khomeini are treated, but the majority of the 159 entries are for political theorists The book is partially successful. Its breadth is wonderful. The subjects range from Hannah Arendt to Simone de Beauvoir and from Booker T. Washington to Sigmund Freud. Missing are Oswald Spengler and Noam Chomsky. Entries range from a short sentence for American Marxist Paul Baran to more than three pages for Nobel Prize-winning economist Friedrich von Hayek. Entries often end with references to other entries in the book. Each concludes with a list of the subject's works and a list of other works about the subject. The lack of a subject index is a flaw. There is no way to find entries for socialists, Marxists, or libertarians, for example Many of the figures in "Routledge" are so well known that information about them can be found in many other sources. Those needing a brief readable summary of the thought of some contemporary theorists, such as feminist writer Catherine MacKinnon or libertarian thinker Robert Nozick, will find this book useful. For libraries on a tight budget, the "Oxford Companion to Politics of the World" is a better choice.

New edition of a dictionary of political thinkers from 1900 to the present. The entries are not limited to politicians, as evidenced by the inclusion of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Derrida, Rorty, and George Bernard Shaw. Each entry includes a brief biography, an outline of the individual's major ideas and texts, and a bibliography of their primary texts. There are 174 entries in all.
