- We can order this
SAGE Reference presents the three-volume Encyclopedia of Political Theory, available in both print and electronic formats.
This work serves as a reference source for anyone interested in the roots of contemporary political theory. Drawing together a team of international scholars, it examines the global landscape of all the key theories and the theorists behind them, presenting them in the context needed to understand their strengths and weaknesses. In addition to interpretations of long-established theories, it also offers essays on cutting-edge research as one might find in a handbook. And, like an unabridged dictionary, it provides concise, to-the-point definitions of key concepts, ideas, schools, and figures.
-Early Modern Theory
-Comparative Political Thought.

"Bevir ... has done a super job editing this new encyclopedia, which thoroughly addresses the key themes found in contemporary political theory and its historical antecedents.... This set evidences a sense of balance and proportionality among its articles that can be hard to achieve.... Summing Up: Highly recommended. *** Lower-level undergraduates and above, general readers."-CHOICE -- J.P. Renaud
"In this three-volume set, Bevir (Univ. of California, Berkeley) has assembled a useful tool for anyone researching political philosophy.... Bottom line While the general public might find it useful for research a political ideology or theory, college students majoring in political science will probably find it most useful. Libraries that own the Encyclopedia of Political Thought... might consider a newer book. Purchase if your budget permits." -- James Langan * Library Journal *
