Political Ideologies: An Introduction

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, 2003 - Philosophy - 382 pages
"Written from an international perspective and ranging from traditional nineteenth-century ideologies like liberalism, conservatism and socialism to more contemporary ones such as feminism, ecologism and political Islam, this book offers a clear exposition of both the historical development of each ideology and the impact each has had on contemporary political movements, parties and governments. The distinctive ideas and values of the various ideologies are highlighted, together with the competing, and sometimes conflicting, traditions which they have generated."--Back cover.
