    Roger Scruton(Author)
Roger Scruton's Dictionary of Political Thought has been widely acclaimed as a profound and incisive guide to political ideas. This new edition takes stock of the revolutionary political changes that have taken place since the dictionary was first published in 1982, bringing the Dictionary right up to date.

Some 1790 entries cover every aspect of political thought, defining concepts and ideologies, surveying the arguments on issues, giving capsule histories of political institutions, and summarizing (with newly expanded treatment) the thought of major political theorists.

The Dictionary provides a readable and impartial survey of political thought, of immense value to students of political science, government, philosophy and jurisprudence as well as to the general reader with an interest in ideas. It is an indispensable guide to the thought, the wisdom and the folly of modern politics by one of the most lucid philosophers of our time.

'It is much more than a dictionary, and is in fact more akin an encyclopaedia in terms of essential reference work that should be available in all government, public and academic libraries.' Terry O'Brien, Reference Reviews
