Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal is a comprehensive look at the 21st century’s major political ideologies, their origins, and their development.
Using an analytical framework that promotes systematic comparison of political ideologies, this text helps students understand ideologies like a political scientist and learn that ideas have real consequences. Used on its own or with a companion reader like Ideals and Ideologies, Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal focuses students on critical rather than dogmatic thinking and on becoming open-minded thinkers better able to defend their political beliefs.
ALSO AVAILABLE: A comprehensive compilation of original readings representing all of the major ’isms, Ideals and Ideologies mirrors the organization of Political Ideologies and the Democratic Ideal and offers students a generous sampling of political thinkers in their own words. Both books are available at a discount when packaged together. Please contact your Pearson sales representative for more information and a special package ISBN.
