This book introduces readers to the concepts of political philosophy - authority, democracy, freedom and its limits, justice, feminism, multiculturalism, and nationality. Accessibly written and assuming no previous knowledge of the subject, it encourages the reader to think clearly and critically about the leading political questions of our time.

  • A lucid and non-technical introduction to the key issues in political philosophy
  • Asks questions such as 'could we live together in societies without politics?' and 'where should the limits of politics be set?'
  • Will appeal to readers curious about politics in general
  • Tackles fundamental questions about how we should judge political systems as being good or bad
