Publisher's Summary

Why Political Science Classics Collection is so important? In today's world, providing quality training for the younger generation at colleges and universities is of primary importance. But higher education is not enough.

Any graduate is first and foremost a citizen of his nation.

He has the right to be an actor in the political life of his society.

The political changes taking place today in the modern world are dependent on the civic stance of each person.

In this way, a serious challenge facing the world system of higher education is to educate citizens who are capable of navigating and influencing the modern political processes in his country.

Youth today actively participate in campaigns carried out by political parties and community organizations.

However, it is impossible to develop conditions which foster a civic position without the existence of a political culture.

In today's global community, facing growing pressures of political extremism and radicalism, knowledge of basic political science principles should help students develop a democratic ethos and foster qualities, such as political tolerance, compromise, and cooperation, while learning to express and defend their interests in a civilized manner.

The foundation of political science lies in the accumulated knowledge of mankind.

This collection was compiled as an aid to college and university students.

Nararation is inconsistent in quality

Nararation is inconsistent in quality, but over all a good deal! The republic is well read, meditations is not, with no offense to the
narrator it’s hard to listen too.

Brilliant and Essential Collection

I am very pleased to have this volume in my collection. Agree or disagree with the Authors, their works have shaped today's International Society.

My only Shortfall:
English is my First (and only) Language. Sadly, I suffer from hearing shortfalls. It is a serious challenge for me to understand narrators for whom English is a Second Language. My comprehension of their words is severely compromised by any external noises, conversations or distractions.

With this said, through no fault of the speakers and despite their Mastery of English, I had difficulties understanding several narrations. This was disappointing. Repeated, focused and dedicated listening has helped.

I very strongly recommend this Audible Book.

Great group of authors.

Enlightening and inspiring as well as a little scary at times. The views of the different governments is an overall fight against barbarism and phillistinism. To keep a healthy way of life for all.

This is not a good format for so many books

It is a pain to find the start or section of a specific book as books and chapter titles are not available. Unless listening to the whole thing all.the way through each time it will s not the best experience.

Great material, displayed terribly

The audiobooks themselves are classics, and worth knowing, but that comes as no surprise. What I found somewhat disappointing was the mixed quality of narration. But the absolute worst thing about this audiobook was that the chapters are unlabeled, so if you want to listen to a particular one you'll have to do a bit of searching. but there's two tips I have for that the chapters shorter than a minute contain end credits and openings, and the books seem to be in chronological order
