Originally published in 1987. This book analyses what Englishmen understood by the term contract in political discussions during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. It provides evidence for reconsidering conventional accounts of the relationships between political ideas, groups and practices of the period. But also suggests cause for examining the general history of modern European contract theory. It considers contract as a term appearing in a spectrum of works from philosophical treatise to sermons and polemical pamphlets. Looking at the various vocabularies relating to contractualist ideas, the author suggests that standard histories of social contract theory and particular histories of English political thought during this unstable period have misrepresented the meaning of the term contract as a key term in political argument. He shows that there were in fact three different categories of contract theory but allows that the various kinds of contractualism did share certain broad features. This study of a crucial age in the history of appeals to contract in political argument will be of interest to political philosophers and historians.

Understanding a political theory becomes easier for students when they are learning the concepts presented here, in this book. Social and political philosophies become easier for the students where the mainstream academic political philosophies take the lead in normative issues, across different nations. Universal content is occasional, whereas MPP, or the mainstream political philosophy, is just mainly parochial. To understand non-western societies, one can hardly bring in references to local problems. The difficulties are further compounded because of the non-availability of any good political science journals today. The book is motivated by a unique but tireless drive, to cater to the needs of those deserving students who are yearning for a quality textbook on the subject of political theory. It is gradually becoming an interdisciplinary concept for any students from the other departments. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

This is a book on political science and political theory on American politics and West African politics. It discussed the systems of government, political behaviors, and analysis. It offers crucial political ideas and ways to achieving good governance, leadership, equality, and freedom. Political leadership in this modern era is corrupt and shows nothing but selfishness toward society. Their priorities as leaders have deviated from managing the overall good welfare of the people, to money, greed, power, and prestige. At the end of the day, poor people suffer the consequences. Modern politics has become a devilish game of empowering the rich and oppressing the poor. Since there are no world police, peace is unattainable among states, and the strongest states forcefully take it all from the weak. We need to improve our reasoning faculties as political leaders because through reasoning we can do good, for the greatest number of people and put in more effort in making our governments and the world a better place for all of us. Our leaders should stop impoverishing the already poor masses; rather help them to live the way people are supposed to live. Politics is all about improving the lives of the masses. There is nothing like playing good politics anymore, most politicians has become deceivers and liars. They dish out fake promises to the voters, just to get elected into office. After winning the election, they use their influence and power to quiet the poor voters. In politics, power is everything. I mean military power and not personal wealth. Military power makes negotiations and decisions a lot easier in the real world. We will discuss these issues and much more in this book. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Josh LeBrun.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of A Political History of the World by Jonathan Holslag, read by Roy McMillan. In 3,000 years of history, China has spent at least 11 centuries at war. The Roman Empire was in conflict during at least 50 percent of its lifetime. Since 1776, the United States has spent over 100 years at war. The dream of peace has been universal in the history of humanity. So why have we so rarely been able to achieve it? In A Political History of the World, Jonathan Holslag has produced a sweeping history of the world, from the Iron Age to the present, that investigates the causes of conflict between empires, nations and peoples and the attempts at diplomacy and cosmopolitanism. A bird´s-eye view of 3,000 years of history, the book illuminates the forces shaping world politics from ancient Egypt to the Han Dynasty, the Pax Romana to the rise of Islam, the Peace of Westphalia to the creation of the United Nations.This truly global approach enables Holslag to search for patterns across different eras and regions and explore larger questions about war, diplomacy, and power. Has trade fostered peace? What are the limits of diplomacy? How does environmental change affect stability? Is war a universal sin of power? At a time when the threat of nuclear war looms again, this is a much-needed history intended for students of international politics and anyone looking for a background on current events. 1.

You Can´t understand 21st-century American politics with an 18th-century brain.... In What´s the Matter with Kansas? Thomas Frank pointed out that a great number of Americans actually vote against their own interests. In The Political Mind, George Lakoff explains why. As it turns out, human beings are not the rational creatures we´ve so long imagined ourselves to be. Ideas, morals, and values do not exist somewhere outside the body, ready to be examined and put to use. Instead, they exist quite literally inside the brain - and they take physical shape there. For example, we form particular kinds of narratives in our minds just like we form specific muscle memories such as typing or dancing, and then we fit new information into those narratives. Getting that information out of one narrative type and into another - or building a whole new narrative altogether - can be as hard as learning to play the banjo. Changing your mind isn´t like changing your body - it´s the same thing. But as long as progressive politicians and activists persist in believing that people use an objective system of reasoning to decide on their politics, the Democrats will continue to lose elections. They must wrest control of the terms of the debate from their opponents rather than accepting their frame and trying to argue within it. This passionate, erudite, and groundbreaking book will appeal to readers of Steven Pinker and Thomas Frank. It is a fascinating read for anyone interested in how the mind works, how society works, and how they work together. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kent Cassella.
