Roger scruton is superb at explaining terms and concepts, many of which are somewhat nebulous. I am professor emeritus of physics, not politics, but when I use this dictionary or just leaf through it, I find well-written articles of real value.

Pure Scruton: clear, honest, compelling.

Two copies, right off the 'new books' table apparently! Received in time for an honors graduate in political science. The best work of its kind and produced in England, and here it is before I expected it. Thank you.

I received this book promptly and in the expected condition. This is an excellent resource for anyone interested in political thought.

This is great for anyone but for me it has been incredibly useful for the public policy area!

Roger Scruton is one of my favorite authors and he does a good job here. The reason for the 3 stars is because I expected more than just a dictionary of definitions of ideas, etc. But this volume is mostly definitions and clarifications of political notions.

In yet another year of 30 second sound bites that we are asked to believe represent well thought out positions on substantive issues, I would recommend this book as an unbiased source for finding out what such words as "liberalism" and "conservatism" really mean.
This reference book goes much deeper than mere definitions in its discussions of everything from the philosophies of Kierkegaard and Heidegger, as they relate to political thinking, to such diverse concepts as "infrastructure," "political economy," and "due process." There are over 1500 entries in all, and each one sheds some light on terms that are bandied about, and frequently misunderstood, by politicians seeking support. There are also many other terms, some common and some obscure, that are discussed.
I think that any reader could benefit by reading the discussions under the aforementioned topics of "Liberalism" and "Conservatism." There might be some surprises awaiting that reader. There is a lot more, and sometimes a lot less, substance than is commonly understood about these political philosophies. Neither discussion fits the negative images presented by the opponents of each of these political philosophies. There seem to be negatives and positives to both.
There is also an excellent discussions on the subject of existentialism and its meaning in the context of late 20th century and early 21st century politics.
Just a few other ideas of what awaits the user of A DICTIONARY OF POLITICAL THOUGHT:
An excellent discussion on the subject of "education" as the process whereby a rational being is instructed and the political implications of this instruction.
A discussion of the concepts of a political party and what distinguishes a party from a faction.
There's much more to this dictionary which might be better defined as an encyclopedia. I think that, during any campaign year, this book, with its many definitions and concept clarifications should be at one's side whenever he or she is listening to any campaign rhetoric.
This dictionary is especially good. This is because it was written entirely by Roger Scruton, one of the most distinguished political philosophers of modern times.

He says the aim of the dictionary has been " to extract, both from active debate, and from the theories and intuitions which surround it, the principal ideas through which modern political beliefs find expression. The emphasis of the dictionary is conceptual rather than factual, exploring the formuation of docrtines rather than specific application. Political events are mentioned only when they cast light on intellectual conceptions."
