The Bloomsbury Companion to Political Philosophy, Paperback / softback Book

The Bloomsbury Companion to Political Philosophy Paperback / softback

Edited by Andrew (California State University, Fresno, USA) Fiala

Part of the Bloomsbury Companions series


The Bloomsbury Companion to Political Philosophy is the definitive guide to contemporary political philosophy.

The book covers all the most pressing and important themes and categories in the field - areas that have continued to attract interest historically as well as topics that have emerged more recently as active areas of research.

Fourteen specially commissioned essays from an international team of experts, including Eduardo Mendieta and Gillian Brock, reveal where important work continues to be done in the area and, most valuably, the exciting new directions the field is taking.

The Companion explores a range of issues from the nature and history of political philosophy, sovereignty, distributive justice, democratic theory, feminist theory, to toleration, human rights, immigration, cosmopolitanism, peace, war, and the challenge of Eurocentrism in political philosophy.

Featuring a series of indispensable research tools, including an A to Z of key terms and concepts, a chronology, a detailed list of resources, and a fully annotated bibliography, this is the essential reference tool for anyone researching or working in political philosophy.
