Mill, George Orwell, Thomas Paine, Plato, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Alexis De Tocqueville, Mary Wollstonecraft, and many more. 50 Politics Classics provides commentaries on the books, pamphlets, and speeches of major leaders, from Abraham Lincoln to Winston Churchill, and the texts, from Aristotle to Naomi Klein, that drive real-world change.
Tom Butler-Bowdon's book spans 2,500 years of thinkers and doers, economists, activists, war strategists, visionary leaders, and philosophers of freedom. Are we living in the post-American world?

Another Great Classic

As with his other "50 Classics" books, this one is filled with thought provoking ideas and contains a wealth of knowledge. The reader, as in the other audiobooks in this series, was excellent. A great listen!
