Coherently organized and lucidly written, the book offers students an overview of the major types of political ideologies in the world during the past three centuries. Particularly valuable are the treatments of newer trends like feminism, environmentalism, and political Islam, as well as the recent rise of right-wing nationalism in America and elsewhere. John A.

  • Baradat gets off to a great start in this book. He defines political ideologies in contrast to political philosophy. Ideologies are shallow, calls to action, that over simplify complex issues while appealing to the masses. Political philosophy is profound, meditates on the way things are, embraces complexity, and is addressed to individuals. After the first couple of chapters embrace these concepts, the following chapters do not distinguish between the two. From classical liberalism to fascism, it's not clear what is ideology and what is philosophy. The other reviewers have touched on some of the other problems. I would just add that I enjoyed the chapter on political structure, and I felt it did a good job of adding to the discussion. This was a textbook in one of my political science courses. At the time, I thought it was profound and I could see nothing wrong. I'm happy that I've grown enough that I could see its flaws.

  • It is a good read. Each chapter is well written with thorough explanations.

  • Great read! It gives definitions too all words of Political Science and goes deep into the terms and its history...

  • Quick shipment and reasonable price!

  • Yes, It was better than I expected

  • it is taking forever for you guys to send this book. I need it as soon as possible for school..

  • "Using a chronological organization, this text explains the evolution of political thought over the past three centuries and describes political ideologies in the context of the social, economic, and political circumstances in which they developed. It provides students with a complete understanding of political ideologies and how these concepts relate to their own lives"...and it does it well!!! Really well organized and easy to read....If you want to know about the political spectrum..this is a great book to learn....I learned alot about my postion on the spectrum..I think most readers will do the same as well

  • As an introduction to the topic, I think that this book is excellently written. The only problem is that the author gives his opinion in so many places. I think it is good for an author to state his opinion and explain it to people, but not in a book that is an introduction to a topic. In introductions it would be better to let the reader just know about the topic since it is too early for him/her to have an opinion about it. However, the author did explain most ideologies and he was fair in treating them. He did not attack ideologies that were not his own. The book clearly explains most ideologies and the author brings into the discussion economic, political and philosophical issues in a coherent way. Had he not been so opinionated I would have given this book five stars.
