Rezension:


"Surveying the history of politics from Plato to the present, it provides a good readable introduction to politics for beginners or a brushup for advanced students or faculty on areas too long ignored."--Choice


"Minogue's slim volume is an admirably light and sensible guide to political practitioners and students who want to learn more about the theoretical and historical context of today's controversies....We would all sleep more soundly if every prospective parliamentary candidate from every party was required to read this admirable book before the next election."--Sir Philip Goodhart


"Kenneth Minogue is a very lively stylist who does not distort difficult ideas....The book cannot fail to attract attention."--Maurice Cranston


"A refreshing, provocative, witty book! It does an excellent job of placing politics within the contexts of history and modern life."--Steve D. Boilard, Western Kentucky University


Rezension:

This is a fascinating book which sketches, in a very short space, one view of the nature of politics the reader is challenged, provoked and stimulated by Minogue's trenchant views. ( Ian Davies, Talking Politics)

a dazzling but unpretentious display of great scholarship and humane reflection. ( Neil O'Sullivan, University of Hull)

Professor Minogue's slim volume is an admirably light and sensible guide to political practitioners and students who want to learn more about the theoretical and historical context of today's controversies. ( Sir Philip Goodhart)

Kenneth Minogue is a very lively stylist who does not distort difficult ideas. ( Maurice Cranston)

Minogue is an admirable choice for showing us the nuts and bolts of the subject. ( Nicholas Lezard, Guardian)
