Understanding Political Ideas and Movements
This book is a comprehensive introduction to the various political ideas and movements that have shaped the modern world. Underpinned by the work of major thinkers such as Marx, Locke, Weber, Hobbes, and Foucault, the first half of the book looks at political concepts including “the state and sovereignty”, “the nation”, “democracy, representation and legitimacy”, “freedom”, “equality” and “rights, obligation, and citizenship.” The second half of the book addresses traditional theoretical subjects such as Socialism, Marxism, and Nationalism, before moving on to more contemporary movements such as Environmentalism, Ecologism, and Feminism.
