Roberts, Peredur Mark and Sutch, Peter David Edward 2004. An introduction to political thought: a conceptual toolkit. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press.

Full text not available from this repository.


This textbook is designed to equip students with a basic 'conceptual toolkit' for the study of politica l thought: (i) a basic political vocabulary, (ii) a conceptual vocabulary and (iii) an historical vocabulary. By mastering these vocabularies, students will be able to engage more deeply and confidently with political thought and the moral and political worlds in which they live. Organised chronologically to trace the history of political thought, the book follows a unique dual structure which introduces both key thinkers and core concepts. Each chapter is written bearing in mind this two-tier organisation and explicitly draws out important elements of both the historical and conceptual vocabularies. On completion, the student will be equipped with an historical and conceptual map to orient them in further study, as well as a clear grasp of the basic vocabulary in which such study is undertaken.
