50 Ideas You Really Need, Prose: non-fiction, Political ideologies

The perfect introduction to the theory and practice of politics.

At a time of widespread popular cynicism and profound international unease, the need for clarity over the basic concepts of politics has never been greater.

The forces of Fundamentalism endanger our Liberty and Security, while government responses to it may pose a basic threat to Justice, Democracy and Human rights. Corruption, War and Tyranny arouse public indignation which is often inflamed by Propaganda, the blandishments of Political parties and the far-from-disinterested attentions of the Media. The proper limits of the State; the legitimacy of Revolution and Political violence; the ideological tensions between Socialism, Liberalism and Capitalism; the challenges posed by Poverty, Crime and Racism: these and other ideas are essential in interpreting the current political debate and modes of government.

In 50 Political Ideas You Really Need to Know, Ben Dupre provides a clear, concise account of key concepts that we ignore at our peril.
