Résumé de Social and political theory

Classical theory courses have been among the most resistant to diversity and multiculturalism having been committed to the 'canon' as it has been handed down. Social and Political Theory: Classical Readings is the first anthology that includes canonical works as well as contemporaneous works by women and by men of colour-works that were, in their time, avidly read and debated.
