Product description


Jonathan Wolff's An Introduction to Political Philosophy is still the best introduction to the subject that I know. It guides the reader through deep questions in a way that is clear, approachable and thought-provoking. (Profes sor Michael Rosen, Department of Government, Harvard University, USA)

All credit to the author, who emerges as the sort of person who would be welcome at anyone`s dinner party. (Dr Mark Garnett, Lancaster University, UK)

This is one of the very best introductions to political philosophy. It is informal yet in no way dumbed down, and it conveys the importance and interest of political philosophy to students. (Dr James Hampshire, University of Sussex, UK)

"This is an excellent introductory text because of the admirable clarity, elegance, and accessibility of its prose. The book is very well conceived and covers the most important figures and problems in a deft and thoughtful manner." (Dr James Skidmore, Idaho State University, USA)

About the Author

Jonathan Wolff is Dean of Arts and Humanities and Professor of Philosophy at University College London. His work has largely concentrated on issues of distributive justice, with a particular interest in the relationship between theory and policy.
