Product description

Lectures in the History of Political Thought
Michael Oakeshott

Oakeshott's memorable lectures on the history of political thought, delivered each year at the London School of Economics, now available Volume II of his Selected Writings.

Based on manuscripts in the LSE archive for 1966-67, the last year of Oakeshott's tenure as Professor of Political Science, these thirty lectures deal with Greek, Roman, mediaeval, and modern European political thought in a uniquely accessible manner.

Scholars familiar with Oakeshott's work will recognize his own ideas subtly blended with an exposition carefully crafted for an undergraduate audience; those discovering Oakeshott for the first time will find an account of the subject that remains illuminating and provocative.

Hardback book with blue cloth covered boards complete with jacket. The boards are in excellent condition with gold printed title, etc., on the spine. The jacket is in good condition with no tears, but with inevitable minor signs of wear. The 516 pages are in near mint condition as is the binding.
