America Today: Political Theory and Practical Politics helps students make connections between political theory and the real world politics of 21st Century America. The readings are presented from the perspective that while the parameters of modern citizenship may have changed, the questions of the great political theorists remain as salient as ever.
The text presents a variety of writings ranging from Plato's Republic to Friedrich von Hayek's A Road to Serfdom. These works question the role of the federal government and how it creates opportunities for citizens to live the best possible lives. They also explore how these questions have been responded to throughout history.
In working through the anthology, students will explore the nature of human beings, and how people should live together to form a society that successfully balances liberty and security.
America Today is suited to courses in political science, pre-law, and history. It can also serve as a supplemental reader for classes in philosophy, sociology, and interdisciplinary studies.
Antonio (Tony) Campbell is a professor of political science at Towson University, where he teaches courses in political theory, American government, campaign strategy, and presidential elections. Prior to teaching, he served in the United States Army as a chaplain in the Maryland Army National Guard. Professor Campbell has also worked for a member of Congress, served as an appointee in the administration of President George W. Bush, and served as chairman of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee. He is the president of Marylanders for Coherent and Fair Representation, Inc., and served as the honorary statewide co-chairman of the Maryland 2012 Referendum Project.
