About the Author

Jon Pike is a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the Open University. He is the author of From Aristotle to Marx, co-editor, with Derek Matravers and Nigel Warburton, of Reading Political Philosophy and editor of Debates in Contemporary Political Philosophy: An Anthology.


Despite the broad and interdisciplinary scope of political philosophy, the book manages to be both concise and comprehensive ... While remaining reasonably neutral [Pike] interjects just enough opinion to make the book a compelling read ... In showing how the diverse concepts fit together, the book succeeds in its goal of providing the philosophical framework needed by new students of this subject.
