Political Philosophy

Political philosophy is the study of government and the relationship of people to communities. It includes questions about justice, law, property, and the rights and obligations of the citizen. See: Wikipedia

Here's what's in the Squashed Philosophers - in chronological order, to try and give some sort of impression of how political ideas have changed over the centuries:

355BC: Plato - The Republic

1515: More - Utopia
1532: Machiavelli - The Prince
1651: Hobbes - Leviathan
