This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
I was expecting a short introduction to political philosophy (based on the title). This is more like "Hey, did you ever wonder why we do this and how we could do it differently?"
I wanted an introduction to the actual people who have addressed these issues in the past. There's a brief mention of Plato, a tiny intro to Hume, some very basic and broad Marx. There's an entire chapter on feminism that doesn't mention a single feminist. Just more "gee whiz" questions about "hey, what if women weren't treated as property?" No historical context or linking between schools of thought.
This is just the author asking the questions of political philosophy himself and then answering them himself.
The book started alright but the authors lunatic left wing postion becomes increasingly obvious and i gave up when he started spewing the usual feminist falehoods in chapter 5.
I didnt expect the author to agree with everything i think. That wasnt the problem. Spouting known falsehoods as truth was what made it impossible for me to finish.

I bought similar books and was appalled. This, however, is beautifully even handed on all the views out there.
I'd love to see a later edition to see what the author has to say regarding the new politics on multiculturalsm and the decline to the West.
Thanks to the authors :-)
