Editorial Reviews

Review

'A formidable contribution as a general introduction to political philosophy. The book's contents are rich enough that it will outlast the reader's tenure as a beginner. The essays and excerpts included therein are worthy of repeat reading, will give even old hands the opportunity to see ideas presented in new and interesting ways.' - James Wakefield, e-International Relations Student Book Features, September 2012

'Arguing About Political Philosophy is a concise yet comprehensive introduction to the field of political philosophy. It is perfect both for beginners and for more advanced students wanting to know why the field’s cutting edge has taken its current shape. This is the best collection of its kind.' – David Schmidtz, University of Arizona, USA

'Drawing from an all-star cast of classic and contemporary readings that are framed by clear and concise introductions, Matt Zwolinksi’s Arguing About Political Philosophy is a superb introduction to thinking about the proper relationship that should hold between governments and individuals. Not only is this volume splendidly organized, but it covers a wealth of approaches and issues that are often omitted in more conventional anthologies. I can think of no other anthology of political philosophy that has both the breadth and depth of this book.' James S. Taylor, The College of New Jersey, USA

'Matt Zwolinski has put together an excellent textbook on political philosophy. He opens with the fundamental questions of whether and why we need authority in the first place, then covers such key issues as rights, equality, democracy, justice, and political economy, and then concludes with topics such as immigration, war, and global justice. The selections, ranging from classic to contemporary, are first-rate, on-point, well-organized, and expertly introduced. Zwolinski has done students and professors a huge service in editing this impressive textbook.' Aeon J. Skoble, Bridgewater State College USA

Old and new pieces of social/political dry matter. It's a must read for any classical philosopher/politician/economist. This book is extensive.
