'Written with both vigour and clarity, and drawing on a wealth of examples taken from a range of different societies, this unique book successfully demonstrates how political theory can address real world controversies whilst also introducing the major branches of moral and political philosophy.' - Andrew Shorten, University of Limerick 'Drawing on a truly impressive range of case studies and salient examples to highlight theoretical points and illuminate the underlying arguments, this is a highly engaging introduction to political theory which shows how issues which have long engaged theorists remain highly relevant for policy makers and citizens today.' - Luis Cabrera, Griffith University, Australia
