Most widely held works by Sheldon S Wolin
Politics and vision; continuity and innovation in Western political thought by Sheldon S Wolin( Book )

85 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seldon Wolin's Politics and Vision inspired and instructed two generations of political theorists after its appearance in 1960. This new edition retains intact the original ten chapters about political thinkers from Plato to Mill, and adds seven chapters about theorists from Marx and Nietzche to Rawls and the postmodernists. The new chapters, which show how thinkers have grappled with the immense possibilities and dangers of modern power, are themselves a major theoretical statement. They culminate in Wolin's remarkable argument that the United States has invented a new political form, "inverted totalitarianism," in which economic rather than political power is dangerously dominant."--Jacket

Tocqueville between two worlds : the making of a political and theoretical life by Sheldon S Wolin( Book )

28 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexis de Tocqueville may be the most influential political thinker in American history. He also led an unusually active and ambitious career in French politics. In this book, one of America's most important contemporary theorists draws on decades of research and thought to present the first work that fully connects to Tocqueville's political and theoretical lives. In doing so, Sheldon Wolin presents sweeping new interpretations of Tocqueville's major works and of his place in intellectual history. As he traces the origins and impact of Tocqueville's ideas, Wolin also offers a profound commentary on the general trajectory of Western political life over the past two hundred years."--Jacket
