We live in politically charged times, yet little of what we contend with today is new, and there is much we can learn from history, argues Tom Butler-Bowdon, who continues his 50 Classics series with this collection of quotes from great political thinkers over the past two millennia. Here you will find Aristotle on the happiness of citizens and Hannah Arendt on totalitarianism, Gandhi on moral power and Nelson Mandela on political struggle, Paul Kennedy on the rise and fall of great powers and Mary Wollstonecraft on the rights of women. ButlerBowdon offers the essence of these writings in a nutshell, links them to similar works, then expands on the writers and their thought with his incisive commentary.
