The book consists of a series of dialogues with pre-eminent contemporary political theorists, that are undertaken by political theorists who are currently interested in and engaged by their work, together with an introductory chapter. The dialogues deal with the influences upon and significant works of these major theorists, as well as their views on the current state of political theory and the significant issues of contemporary politics. The 12 theorists who are the focus of these dialogues represent major aspects of contemporary political theory, and are drawn from several areas of the globe. They include Dipesh Chakrabarty, Amartya Sen, Carole Pateman, R B J Walker and Quentin Skinner. What they have in common and reveal in these interviews are fascinating backgrounds and influences and highly individual perspectives on theory and politics. The upshot is a multi-faceted introduction to political theory today.
