The authority and responsibilities given to government affect not only our social customs but our prosperity and our freedom. The Giants of Political Thought series introduces you to the most influential thinkers on this subject through a series of dramatic presentations that explain their major works. You will gain a clear and relevant overview of their most important ideas and how they have helped to shape political history. Francis Bacon said that knowledge is power.
