Profes sor Michael Rosen, Department of Government, Harvard University, USA 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.
Dr Mark Garnett, Lancaster University, UK All credit to the author, who emerges as the sort of person who would be welcome at anyone`s dinner party.
Dr James Hampshire, University of Sussex, 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 Skidmore, Idaho State University, USA "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."
