"Engaging Political Philosophy is recommended for teachers wanting to learn with students willing to discover. This scholarly text sheds fresh light on enduring political issues and stimulates readers to become intellectually and politically engaged with primary sources. It proves that teaching the classics of modern political philosophy is alive and well." Thomas W Simon, Illinois State University <!--end-->

"Levin's collection would be a fine supplement to an advanced survey course in modern political philosophy. It would also provide particularly valuable insights for nonspecialists preparing to teach such a course." Ethics, October 2003
