Political theory inspires us to think and understand rationally about questions related to human existence and collective life. Political theory has traditionally been concerned with developing a better understanding of important ideas, concepts and relationships between them, such as Liberty, Equality, Justice, Rights, Citizenship, etc.
While writing the book, special care has been taken to present abstract concepts in simple language with suitable examples. It will help to acquaint the readers not only with the basic concepts of political theory but also with important contemporary debates. The book focuses on critical and reflective analysis and interpretation of social and political practices and provides a clear and comprehensible introduction to the complex understanding of concepts such as Egalitarianism, Liberty, Equality, Global Justice, Gender, Political Obligation and Human Rights.
