“A captivating and authoritative book, Political Ideologieswill intrigue students about fundamental political ideas, both answering their questions and inciting further ones. Baradat is interested both in the reigning ideals of modern times and in how these are involved in the non-ideal realities of the world, giving us searching and even-handed examinations of the major political attitudes and thought systems of our time.”– Glenn Tinder, University of Massachusetts at Boston
