Comprehensive yet accessible, this classic text, now in its thirteenth edition follows the evolution of political thought over 300 years. Organized chronologically, this text examines each ideology within a political, historical, economic, and social context. In addition to a thorough updating of examples and data, here's what you'll find in the new edition:

  • Analyses of President Trump's rollback of Obamacare, trade war with China, and changes to immigration, taxation, and environmental policy.
  • Conservative justifications for supply-side economics and liberal rationale for drug legalization and "trigger-word" bans.
  • Brexit's effects on the Scottish independence movement.
  • Resurgence of feminist protest, including the Me Too movement, alongside anarchist protest, following Trump's election, including groups like Black Bloc and Antifa.
  • China's rising environmental and social problems, including unrest among its heavily controlled Uighur population.
  • Cuba's transfer of power from the Castros to President Dìaz-Canel, and their fraught rapprochement with the U.S.
  • Russia's disinformation campaigns, and alternating brinksmanship and détente between Trump and North Korea's Chairman Kim Jong-un.
  • The ascent of the Alt-right in the U.S., and white supremacist influence on parties in the U.S. and Europe.
  • The continuing salience of Islamism, the teetering Iran deal, and ongoing degeneration of the Arab Spring to the Islamist Winter.
