In this provocative but balanced audiobook, Kenneth Minogue discusses the development of politics from the ancient world to the twentieth century. He prompts us to consider why political systems evolve, how politics offers both power and order in our society, whether democracy is always a good thing, and what future politics may have in the twenty-first century.

"Waffle, heaped upon endless waffle"
Nobody. I really mean this.
Not at all. Ben Dupre does one called 50 ideas. It is lovely :-)
You cannot blame the messenger. The author is the flaw.
No, none whatsover.
I listened for a long time, waiting to learn something. I didn't.
Eventually I picked out chapters of interest. It was just endless words, without ever actually saying anything.
I really am appalled and will happily look the author in the eye and tell him to get a job. I am slightly annoyed that I paid to have this chancer waste my leisure time.
"A very basic, yet thought provoking introduction"
It is a good introduction to politics as a whole and it is very thought provoking. I got through it in 2 sittings.
