Format: Paperback
This book formed the basis for an honours seminar course in politics. Whilst there are a huge variety of topics in contemporary political theory covered, unfortunately the impression one gets is of serious space limitations placed upon each contributing author. The weakenss in many of the contributions is the continual reference to theorists and authors that, unless the reader were deeply schooled in political theory, serve only to confuse the reader and leave the the reader struggling to make sense of the author's argument. The feeling of space limitations arises from the way many of the contributors assume the reader is already familiar with many of the theorists and authors mentioned and the failure to provide even more than a rudimentary background sketch of the theoretical 'schools' referred to.
Undoubtedly the contributors to the volume are knowledgeable in their field, but the going is very hard in much of the book for even a relatively half-interested reader. In many instances, the reader struggles to gain a 'big-picture' overview of the subject, and is left feeling led into the by-ways and country lanes of political theory. This book is strictly for those dedicated to modern political theory at honours level or above. Pity the student forced to read this book for a university course.
