Political Theory is a comprehensive book for undergraduates and postgraduates studying political science. The book explores the various schools of political science, examining the nature, and scope of these methods. It explains how politics is a result of social process and how political thought has evolved over the millennia. It shows the nature of the state and the relation with the people, examining the origins of government as a result. It ventures further, studying how thinkers such as Hobbes, Locke and Rousseau put forth their theories of the state and how the state itself is justified in its actions. The book also explains the topics of state action, defines a welfare state, and explores the ideologies of capitalism, socialism and communism. It helps readers understand how humankind has come to look at the idea of Justice over the years and how it has defined liberty and equality for the classes. It also tries to throw light on the evolution of the republic and eventually democracy, showing how the state has changed in its view regarding the public and the rights and duties it assigns to them in current times. It also explores communism and Marxist theories, exploring how socialism changed after Marx. It also discusses the evils of Fascism and Nazism, explaining how they drove the world to hate crimes and war. In addition, the book explores the political thoughts of Mohandas Gandhi, the Father of the Indian Nation, as well as those of others, showing how we are progressing towards a better governance model. The book is an indispensable resource for all political science graduates.
