This series is a great idea: the cartoons make a dense subject easy to get your mind round and there is not much evidence of agenda from the writers. Inevitably everything is seen through the lens of our century's ideas; on the other hand the ideas are presented with relevance and edge. When you think these cartoons are describing the great thinkers of humanity this medium does take us humans down a peg or two, which is a very good thing. It would be wonderful if philosophers started with an awe of creation rather than try to justify what someone called the 'possessive individualism! But I guess they are human (sic) after all.

The book runs more as a progression between schools of thought throughout time, and gives the reader a basic understanding of what is a complicated subject. All of the major and influential political theories are covered by the book, and most of the illustrations help the reader. Considering the price, it is a good book for newcomers to political science but it's utility is reduced for a person already familiar with political theory.

These graphic guides are a great way to scratch the veneer of a topic and this is no exception. Lovely history and overview of political philosophy.

Very thin. This series is getting too thin. They need to beef up the content. Otherwise they should sell these for a fifth of the price to under 8 year olds.
