Arguing about Political Philosophy

$73.95

This second edition of Arguing About Political Philosophy is the most complete, up-to-date, and interdisciplinary anthology of its kind. Its selections cover both classic philosophical sources such as Hobbes and Rousseau, and contemporary figures such as Robert Nozick and G.A. Cohen. But additional excerpts from economists, psychologists, novelists, and legal theorists help students from diverse intellectual backgrounds to connect with and appreciate the problems and distinctive methodology of political philosophy.

This second edition also goes beyond any other anthology on the market in its coverage of traditionally under-represented views such as libertarianism, neo-socialism, feminism, and critical race theory. And it is one of the only anthologies to go beyond A Theory of Justice in its coverage of the political thought of John Rawls.

The volume is divided into 3 parts - Foundational Concepts; Government, the Economy and Morality; and Applied Political Philosophy - covering core arguments and emerging debates in topics like:

  • social contract theory
  • political economy
  • property rights
  • freedom
  • equality
  • immigration
  • global distributive justice
  • The new companion website offers valuable resources for instructors and students alike, including sample quizzes, exams, and writing assignments, extensive study questions for each reading, and an online version of the "What's Your Political Philosophy" self-assessment.

    Quite possibly the greatest science fiction collection of all time--past, present, and future!

    What if life was neverending? What if you could change your body to adapt to an alien ecology? What if the pope were a robot? Spanning galaxies and millennia, this must-have anthology showcases classic contributions from H. G. Wells, Arthur C. Clarke, Octavia E. Butler, and Kurt Vonnegut, alongside a century of the eccentrics, rebels, and visionaries who have inspired generations of readers.

    "Thirty years ago my older brother, who was ten years old at the time, was trying to get a report on birds written that he'd had three months to write. It was due the next day. We were out at our family cabin in Bolinas, and he was at the kitchen table close to tears, surrounded by binder paper and pencils and unopened books on birds, immobilized by the hugeness of the task ahead. Then my father sat down beside him, put his arm around my brother's shoulder, and said, 'Bird by bird, buddy. Just take it bird by bird.'"

    "A warm, generous and hilarious guide through the writer's world and its treacherous swamps." -- "Los Angeles Times."

    "A gift to all of us mortals who write or ever wanted to write... sidesplittingly funny, patiently wise and alternately cranky and kind -- a reveille to get off our duffs and start writing "now," while we still can." -- "Seattle Times."

    Book on Writing the Ultimate Guide to Writing Well

    $9.99
    You're going to love the way Paula LaRocque teaches in The Book on Writing. A celebrated writing coach with a sense of humor and a gentle touch, she's also a master writer herself with a long and distinguished career in both teaching and practicing the art of writing.

    The Book on Writing contains 25 chapters in three sections:

    - A dozen essential but easy-to-apply guidelines to good writing, from the importance of clarity to the value of a conversational tone. Paula LaRocque believes learning is easier and more successful when we are not only told but also shown. So her Book on Writing is chockfull of actual writing examples that supplement and illustrate principles that apply as naturally to fiction as they do to nonfiction.

    - How to tell a story-from building suspense, to effective description, to the uses of metaphor and literary devices. Paula LaRocque also deals with the narrative "engine" and the value of the archetype in plotting and characterization-as well as with pace and speed and leveling what she terms writing's "speedbumps."

    - A clear and concise handbook that deals with common problems in grammar, usage, punctuation, and style-the kind of problems that often trouble even wordsmiths. The handbook also debunks pesky language "rules" that are actually myths.

    The Book on Writing is one-stop shopping for writers. Read it once, and you'll be a better writer. Read it often, and you'll be among the best.
