Editorial Reviews


"... this anthology of essays covers quite a bit of territory with respect to 20th C. political thought. Strauss, Voegelin, and Schmitt receive coverage, but so too does Gramsci, Rawls, Rorty, Taylor, Hayek, and MacIntyre ... this is a very good introductory text for students or those looking to quickly navigate the last 100 or so years of political philosophy."
Ius Honorarium

"... The editor Catherine Zuckert assembles an impressive cast of contributors and does a fine job of quality control. The book maintains an overall high standard and includes particularly good chapters by Joseph Buttigieg on Gramsci, Dana Villa on Arendt, Michael Bacon on Rorty, and Arthur Madigan on MacIntyre. An excellent introduction to the field, this edited volume is more comprehensive than single-authored books of similar orientation ... the author-byauthor approach of Zuckert's volume nicely complements the growing literature on the intersection of intellectual history and political history ..."
Kei Hiruta, Philosophy in Review

Book Description

This book demonstrates the rich diversity and depth of political philosophy in the twentieth century in essays on the lives and works of eighteen eminent political theorists, including representatives of the three main political alternatives - liberal, fascist, and communist - in the first half of the century, émigrés like Hannah Arendt and Leo Strauss who brought a continental perspective to the United States after World War II, and more recent defenders and critics of liberalism.
