Product Description

From the Back Cover

Classics of Modern Political Theory: Machiavelli to Mill brings together the complete texts or substantial selections from the masterpieces of modern political theory. The most comprehensive collection of its kind, this volume includes well-known works by Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, Hegel, and Marx, and significant contributions by Spinoza, Montesquieu, Hume, Adam Smith, Kant, Burke, Bentham, and Tocqueville. A distinctive feature is the inclusion of the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and numerous papers from The Federalist. An extended introduction to each author's writings, provided by a renowned authority on the subject, features biographical data, philosophical commentary, and bibliographical guides. Ideal for courses in political philosophy and intellectual history, as well as surveys of Western Civilization, the book presents the most influential authors and ideas that have shaped modern political thought.

Format: Paperback
Excellent, indispensable resource and reference for all those taking a degree in Political Science or any such subject. Good selections from modern political thinkers from Machiavelli to Mill are included with short, useful prefaces. The 4 stars are partly due to the poor quality of the binding of the whole book.Otherwise perfect.

ps: interesting selections from early US political history are included. And a generous portion of Hegel.

This text is really useful when I am looking for some theories from the standard names in political philosophy. Not a huge selection, but it is still quite useful. I am an International Relations Major and it seems to work quite well with topics and is useful to cite for papers.

5.0 out of 5 stars small review of Cahn's Classics of M. Political Thought 28 Sept. 2008
By Felix A. Jimenez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well, I bought this book as a requirement for a class at FSU. The readings are very close to their originals and it makes for a hard understanding which can present difficulties if you need to read 40 pages of Hobbes' theories in one afternoon along with some more hw. The excerpts are nevertheless well presented, very good as a source book and very good to quote from. The book from amazon was also in a very good condition. I am very satisfied
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Anthology. 10 Aug. 2008
By QuixoticOther - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Basic political theory anthology. Big book with really big pages and SMALL type. Not too bad but a pain to read at length.
