Theories of politics are themselves a aprt of politics. History has no concluding chapter. To write the whole history of Western political theory from this point of view, of social relativism, is probably a greater task than a careful scolar ought to have attempted.
Interesting, but boring, read. Had a wealth of information which was worthy of being read; unfortunately, the topic itself is not an all encompassing topic depicting fun…of course,I must admit I read it while convalescing from a hip replacement surgery. So, I had nowhere else to get to and wanted to get this book out of the read queue.
