The book Political Philosophy: Text and Context is an energetic and engaged exercise to have correct understanding of a thinker. This book has been written to help students see how political philosophy connects and negotiates diverse aspects of human life in ways most people do not realize. It can be used in conjunction with primary sources but it can also stand on its own as an introduction to political philosophy. It aims to discuss consciously the views of major twenty-four western political philosophers, from Plato to Judith Butler, to demonstrate how their views about politics and society are critical to understand the politics of our time. This comprehensive collection of essential selections of political philosophy, from the ancient world to the contemporary, is presented in chronological order and grouped by period. Each reading is accompanied by a brief biographical sketch of the philosopher and each period is prefaced by general historical overview. Contents: Preface; Introduction; Leo Strauss; Plato; Aristotle; Cicero; St. Augustine; Thomas Acquinas; Niccolo Machiavelli; Thomas Hobbes; John Locke; Jean Jacques Rousseau; David Hume; Edmund Burke; Mary Wollstonecraft; Immanuel Kant; G.W.F. Hegel; John Stuart Mill; Karl Marx; Friedrich Nietzsche; Herbert Marcuse; Michel Foucault; John Rawls; Robert Nozick; Jurgen Habermas; Judith Butler.Printed Pages: 480. 104154

9 B.N. Ray
Western Political Thought
Kaveri Book Service; New Delhi, India; 2013; 8174791442 / 9788174791443; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
This book is an energetic, engaged and lucid account of the most important political and social thinkers and the enduring themes of the last two and a half millennia. The book traces the development of political thought from Plato to Marx. It focuses on individual thinkers and texts and offers original views of theorists and by highlighting those which may have been unjustly neglected. It develops the wider themes of political thought and relations between thinkers over time. Each chapter is intended to present a coherent political theory derived from the works of a classical political thinker. All chapters share a common organizational structure, a feature that should facilitate comparison, accentuating the distinctive implications of accepting one of these alternative ways of looking at political reality for understanding and evaluating political possibilities. Although each of the subsequent chapter can stand by itself, none should be considered a substitute for reading the original work of a great political thinker. The book presents a fascinating history of Western political thought in a witty, confident and sometimes extremely poetic style. It will inform, challenge, provoke and entertain in what people have had to say about politics in the last two and half thousand years.Printed Pages: 663. 104164
