Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This volume provides an outstanding survey of the major political philosophers of the twentieth century.

Michael H. Lessnoff demonstrates the absurdity of the view that political philosophy "died" in the twentieth century. In this clear, acute and authoritative treatment, he demonstrates that the twentieth century has produced a galaxy of political philosophers who can stand comparison with those of any earlier period. Originality in political theory was sparked by new political problems and crises, of which this most political of centuries had more than its fair share.

Lessnoff charts the responses to political crises by both liberal and neo-Marxist writers, as well as less easily classifiable thinkers such as Arendt and Habermas. He shows also how twentieth-century political theories have been shaped by reaction to deep-rooted social and ideological forces such as bureaucratization, rationalization and "disenchantment".

An ideal resource for any student of political thought, this book will also be welcomed by all who are interested in political philosophy or the history of our time.
