About the Book

As an introduction to political theory and science, this collection of writings by the great philosophers provides a basic textbook for general readers as well as students of government and political theory.

Such fundamental concepts as Democracy, the Rule of Law, Justice, Natural Rights, Sovereignty, Citizenship, Power, the State, Revolution, Liberty, Reason, Materialism, Toleration, and the Place of Religion in Society are traced from their origins, through their development and changing patterns, to show how they guide political thinking and institutions today. This edition includes examinations of selected works by Sophocles, Francois Hotman, and Francisco Suarez.
