The major text begins by surveying the classical theories of the state. The core chapters then address the dominant pluralist and post-pluralist approaches to understanding the modern liberal democratic state, the main critiques from feminism, new elitism, green theory, neo-conservatism, and the challenges of globalization and postmodernism.
