Summary

Talking Politics is a philosophical examination of some of the basic concepts of political discourse. Its primary focus is on the ordinary; on what is said by politicians, in newspapers and by people in pubs, rather than on the works of political theorists. This is a work of, but not on political theory.
Talking Politics is:

* Invaluable as a source of reference for students, and contains a detailed index

* Arranged thematically, around topics such as `Nation'. Each entry has copious cross-references and suggestions for further reading

A. W. Sparkes is uniquely qualified to write such a book, combining some thirty years' teaching as a philosopher with wide experience of, and a life-long fascination with, politics. His attitude is that of a critical, but uncynical, observer.
