KNOW YOUR ISMS

A primer of definitions which uses simple terminology to explore the various forms of social and political theory. From the Utopias, on through Democracy, to Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Nazism, the various ideas are presented first with their history, then with the examination of their concepts and of the known state of current existence under their regimes, and throughout the ""isms"" are capitalized so that there is no chance of confusion. A handy, explicit guide to the proper understanding of the many labels and terms in use today, this should be a good reference book for clarifying their use and for understanding their meaning.
