This anthology surveys important issues in Western political philosophy from Plato to the present day. Its aim is to show both the continuity and the development of political thought over time. Each unit begins with readings on the fundamental theoretical principles underlying political discourse. Theory is then connected to practice in readings on contemporary issues as well as court cases and other political documents.

Great read, has the classics in it... Used it for school so what can I say. I'd recommend it for research, it's broken down into sections really well and has discussion questions at the end. I ordered this from ralphiebooks/CU Book Store (36 UCB Boulder CO), they process orders late and ship late so my expedited shipping fee became useless. A person with the signature "Mickey" refused to give me a refund on a technicality that Amazon has in place, not them. I have filled 2 claims and will be reporting them to the ICC (FBI).
This is a great compilation of differing viewpoints and ideas about different philosophical topics. I used this book for a Moral Dilemmas course in college and generally enjoyed it as far as textbooks go. For those who haven't seen this book, it is a beast. It is as thick as a large print version of war and peace and is all in size 8-10 font. You can probably find most of these articles online, but if you just can't find them elsewhere or just like the comfort of sitting down with a good philosophy book starting with Plato going all the way to 2012 Court Cases, then this is your man. If you can't stand dry readings that seem to ramble or have a hard time with small print, you should probably drop whatever class that requires this.
