Product description

Review

This is a wonderful collection, with great introductory essays....We should all be grateful to the editors for selecting and contextualizing so rich a body of materials.Kwame Anthony Appiah, Princeton UniversityThe selections are broader than in other works I have seen....The annotation is, as advertised, fuller than is usual in such works, and consistently helpful....All in all, this is an impressive workby far the best political anthology I have seen.George Klosko, Henry L. and Grace Doherty Professor, University of VirginiaQuite simply, this is a fantastic anthology. It includes not just the standard readings from the western canon but also important ones left out of most anthologies, including several by women. The anthology includes concise, accurate, and extremely helpful introductions, which include, uniquely, a discussion of common misperceptions of each work. These introductions are perfectly pitched for an undergraduate audience.Darren Walhof, Grand Valley State University

From the Back Cover

This volume features a careful selection of major works in political and social philosophy from ancient times through to the present. Every reading has been painstakingly annotated, and each figure is given a substantial introduction highlighting his or her major contribution to the tradition. The anthology offers both depth and breadth in its selection of material by central figures, while also representing other currents of political thought. Thirty-two authors are represented, including fourteen from the 20th century. The editors have made every effort to include translations that are both readable and reliable.

In order to ensure the highest standards of accuracy and accessibility, the editors have consulted dozens of leading academics during the course of the volume's development (many of whom have contributed introductory material as well as advice). The result is an anthology with unparalleled pedagogical benefits; The Broadview Anthology of Social and Political Thought sets the new standard for social and political philosophy instruction.
