Helped me pass political theory and philosophy exams - read this book and wont have to read any other to get at least B+. I have the first edition too, but this one is MUCH better. 1. Great anthology for Philosophy or political science majors 2. Very reader-friendly print and formatting 3. Every major philosophy included: from Plato and Confucius to Martin Luther King Jr. and Tolstoy 4. Great glossary, index, summaries and study guides 5. Contains US Constitution and a few other major documents - saves money.
Quite helpful if you want to reread all the major philosophers and their philosophies in a nut shell. I can see how someone may easily use the book as cliff notes - very well written and neetly organizedm all major events and key phrases bolded and italicized. The book is a part of Georgian International University Press Classics series - one of my favorites
