Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 18 February 2006
I read this book during a course of study in health policy during which a basic understanding of political ideology was pretty important. Coming from a scientific background I had very little prior knowledge of politics but I found that the style of Andrew Heywood's book was extremely clear. He outlines key ideas in Political Ideology in the context of their historical development, so one gets a good idea of how different social circumstances for example influenced the evolution of political ideas. There is also very clear explanation of the various areas of overlap between the various ideologies e.g. between Neoliberalism and Neoconservatism.
As someone who is not an expert in politics, I am unable to suggest personally whether the book expresses accurate information regarding the development of poltical ideologies but I used alot of information from the book in assignments which were marked by tutors who are extremly well versed in political ideology and they did not express any concerns about the ideas being excessively partial or biased.
