Top customer reviews
No work can be entirely devoid of ideology, but I saw nothing particularly "leftist" about this work. That specter seems to haunt one reviewer below. However, it is more accurate to say that this dictionary sees no need to repeat the "official" views of neo-liberal democracies about its perceived enemies. It is as "objective" as a political book can be and as accurate as we expect of a dictionary.
This is an excellent tool for those who need explanations of political matters, which includes anyone who studies politics seriously. I highly recommend it.
