Table of Contents

"This volume of dialogues presents an absorbing portrait of the current state of the discipline of political theory. The core idea that political theory involves a range of overlapping if, at points, quite distinct methods and approaches is very welcome. Such a text as this would have been unlikely to have seen the light of day even a decade ago. The editors are to be congratulated for their innovative commitment to a more comprehensive grasp of the discipline as it really functions."Emeritus Professor Andrew Vincent, Cardiff and Sheffield Universities 'It is really rare to gain a glimpse of how political theorists reflect upon their own work. Featuring conversations with some of the most prominent contemporary theorists carried out by distinguished theorists in their own right, this book presents most valuable insights for both beginners and advanced readers—a remarkable accomplishment.' Engin Isin- Professor of Politics, The Open University
