This new edition of Political Thinking, Political Theory, and Civil Society presents a comprehensive overview of the Western tradition of political thought that approaches concepts with the aim of helping readers develop their own political thinking and critical thinking skills. This text is uniquely organized around the theme of civil society - What is the nature of a civil society? Why is it important? - that will engage students and help make the material relevant. Major thinkers discussed in the text are explored not only with the goal of understanding their views but also with an interest in understanding the relationship of their ideas to the notion of a civil society.
New to this edition:
• Visual aids and pedagogy
• New chapter on black political theory and civil society, including a discussion of protest and #BlackLivesMatter in political theory.
• Expanded discussions of feminism and the LGBTQ movement, as well as an additional discussion of the #MeToo movement from the perspective of its theoretical foundation and its implications for feminist theory.
• Revised chapter on multiculturalism, including an expanded discussion of religion, neoliberalism, globalization, and global environmental issues.
This authoritative text, written by two leading theorists and experienced lecturers, is essential reading for all students of political theory and philosophy.
