The extensively revised new edition of this bestselling text continues to provide an accessible overview of the major political ideologies, their origins, and their development.nbsp; In addition to examining the major ldquo;ismsrdquo; liberalism, conservatism, socialism, and fascism the book offers readers the history, structure, supporting arguments, and internal complexities of these and recently emerging ideologies. nbsp; nbsp; The text utilizes a fourfold framework a definition of ldquo;ideologyrdquo; in terms of the four functions ideologies perform within which to compare, contrast, and analyze the various ideologies.nbsp; In addition, the book also shows how each ideology interprets ldquo;democracyrdquo; (which the authors characterize as an ideal rather than an ideology) and ldquo;freedom.rdquo;nbsp; In examining the latter notion, the authors analyze each ideologyrsquo;s view of freedom in terms of agent, obstacle, and goal.
