Dogmas and Dreams
A Reader in Modern Political Ideologies

Fourth Edition
Edited by:


© 2009 | 824 pages | CQ Press

Ideologies influence not only our politics, but also our basic societal values, our socialization as individuals, and the way we communicate. As the world changes, the ideologies through which we view it also change. Showing the evolution of politics through the study of ideas, Dogmas and Dreams is the perfect entrée to political science and  political theory.

In addition to expanded coverage of liberalism, libertarianism, and democratic socialism, eleven new selections explore the varied effects  of globalization on traditional and emergent ideologies: How have traditional ideologies changed in response to processes of globalization? How has globalization prompted the development of new ideologies?

Love’s insightful introductions ask readers to discover and challenge their own political convictions as they engage with the original selections.
