Editorial Reviews


"This volume does contemporary political philosophy proud.... the real quality of the volume like this is a function of its contributions, and the pieces here could hardly be bettered." Utilitas

<!--end-->"It will provide an unrivalled overview of the principal positions and debates in political philosophy over the past thirty years or so. It should establish itself as the standatd one-volume reader for some time to come." Daniel Weinstock, University of Montreal

From the Back Cover

Political philosophy has become an increasingly active area of research over the past four decades. In response to the growing interest in the field, this new edition of A Companion to Contemporary Political Philosophy has been extended significantly to include fifty-five chapters across two volumes written by some of today’s most distinguished scholars.

Straddling analytic and continental philosophy, the first part of the Companion considers the contributions of economics, history, law, political science, international relations and sociology to normative political thought. The collection then provides analyses of eight live political ideologies, including new chapters on Cosmopolitanism and Fundamentalism, and detailed discussions of key concepts, with much expanded coverage of international politics and global justice.

An essential reference for anyone interested in this dynamic field, the new edition of A Companion to Contemporary Political Philosophy is the most current and comprehensive resource available.
