Contemporary political ideologies; a comparative analysis by Lyman Tower Sargent( Book )

106 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than twenty-five years in print and still an incomparable success, this book provides a rich introduction to the dominant (and some of the minor) political ideologies of the modern world." "Besides providing a comparative study of nationalism, democracy, feminism, Marxism, and Islam, Lyman Tower Sargent also introduces readers to such ideologies as anarchism, liberation theology, environmentalism, fascism, and national social. The result is a thorough exploration of how political ideologies affect the way people think and governments act." "Through his comparative approach, Sargent looks at each ideology from a variety of perspectives - presenting the arguments positions, and counter-positions of each, including its roots in current political debates. This Tenth Edition continues to emphasize the link between recent world events and political ideologies by including updated coverage of the impact of nationalism, democracy, Islam, feminism, and the Green Movement."--BOOK JACKET
The utopia reader by Gregory Claeys( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Utopian literature has given voice to the hopes and fears of the human race from its earliest days to the present. The only single-volume anthology of its kind, The Utopia Reader encompasses the entire spectrum and history of utopian writing-from the Old Testament and Plato's Republic, to Sir Thomas More's Utopia and George Orwell's twentieth century dystopia, Nineteen Eighty-Four, through to the present day. The editors of this definitive collection demonstrate the various ways in which utopias have been used throughout history as veiled criticism of existing conditions and how peoples excluded from the dominant discourse-such as women and minorities-have used the form to imagine empowering alternatives to present circumstances. An engaging tour through the dissident, polemic, and satirical tradition of utopian writing, The Utopia Reader ultimately provides a telling portrait of civilization's persistent need to imagine and construct ideal societies

The Oxford handbook of political ideologies by Michael Freeden( Book )

22 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first comprehensive volume to offer a state of the art investigation both of the nature of political ideologies and of their main manifestations. The diversity of ideology studies is represented by a mixture of the range of theories that illuminate the field, combined with an appreciation of the changing complexity of concrete ideologies and the emergence of new ones. Ideologies, however, are always with us. The Handbook is divided into three sections: The first reflects some of the latest thinking about the development of ideology on an historical dimension, from the standpoints of conceptual history, Marx studies, social science theory and history, and leading schools of continental philosophy. The second includes some of the most recent interpretations and theories of ideology, all of which are sympathetic in their own ways to its exploration and close investigation, even when judiciously critical of its social impact. This section contains many of the more salient contemporary accounts of ideology. The third focuses on the leading ideological families and traditions, as well as on some of their cultural and geographical manifestations, incorporating both historical and contemporary perspectives. Each chapter is written by an expert in their field, bringing the latest approaches and understandings to their task. The Handbook will position the study of ideologies in the mainstream of political theory and political analysis and will attest to its indispensability both to courses on political theory and to scholars who wish to take their understanding of ideologies in new directions
Political thought in the United States : a documentary history( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An innovative departure from traditional approaches to political thought, Lyman Tower Sargent's groundbreaking anthology includes minority ideologies and positions where they occurred historically. By interweaving minority voices with majority documents rather than grouping them separately, Political Thought in the United States presents us with a uniquely organic portrait of American political life. Beginning with the time of the explorers and early settlers, the volume presents the political beliefs and ideologies of religious minorities, women, North American Indians, and African Americans as fundamental components of American thought. Emphasizing that such minority perspectives never melted together into the mainstream, Sargent subscribes to a "tossed salad" approach which emphasizes the distinctness of minority opinions. Sargent's introductory comments, which preface the selections, serve as connecting narratives and help the reader follow ideological disputes as they occurred, revealing a historical continuum and enriching our understanding of contemporary politics
Living in utopia : New Zealand's intentional communities by Lucy Sargisson( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Sargisson and Sargent, both established writers on utopian theory, turn their attention to real-life utopian communities. The book is based on their fieldwork and extensive archival research in New Zealand, a country with a special place in the history of utopianism. A land of opportunity for settlers with dreams of a better life, New Zealand has, per capita, more intentional communities - groups of people who have chosen to live and sometimes work together for a common purpose - than any country in the world. Sargisson and Sargent draw on the experiences of more than fifty such communities, to offer the first academic survey of this form of living utopian experiment." "In telling the story of the New Zealand experience, Living in Utopia provides both transferable lessons in community, cooperation and social change and a unique insight into the utopianism at the heart of politics, society, and everyday life."--Jacket
