The new third edition of the highly successful text has been revised and updated throughout to take account of new issues such as identity and difference, globalization and multiculturalism. The book provides a clear and accessible introduction to political theory and key concepts in political analysis. Each chapter discusses a cluster of interrelated terms, examines how they have been used by different thinkers and in the various political traditions, and explores related debates and controversies.

Reviews of previous editions:
"Political Theory: An Introduction not only provides a remarkably lucid and informative analysis of a wide variety of theories and concepts, it also skillfully illustrates their relevance to modern-day political debates and developments...This is a fascinating and highly informative text which is clearly organized and written with wonderful clarity. Heywood conveys not only his undoubted expertise but also his enthusiasm for the subject...at 400 pages, it represents excellent value for money."--Peter Dorey, Talking Politics
"...an impressively comprehensive and clearly written volume...He writes clearly and smartly."--Harvey J. Kaye, Times Higher Education Supplement
"Here is a marvellous introductory tour through the territory of political theory ...Heywood has charted the area so clearly and matched his lucid thinking with such accessible prose that his guided tour is a tour de force, an ideal primer for new students of politics at both advanced and university level."--Jessica Saraga, Times Educational Supplement
"Political Theory is a lucid and highly engaging introduction to political theory. Heywood covers a large range of ideas and issues and he is particularly good at taking a synoptic view of these and making them accessible for those coming to political theory for the first time. No matter how high the ideal or how abstract the concept, he never fails to make it intelligible and to illustrate its relevance for the real world of politics."--Peter Jones, University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne
"A brilliant text; superbly organized in terms of the complex subject matter, very perceptive and wonderfully clearly written. Quite the best book on political ideas available."--Bill Jones, University of Manchester
