This Book, ‘A Compact Text Book of Western Political Thought’
is a comprehensive syllabus based text book for BA 1st Year, 2nd SEMESTER
in Political Science as prescribed by Manipur University. Since syllabus based
text books are rarely available in the market, students have to go for quite a
good number of books to have a full set of Syllabus which is not only a costly
a‑ air, but also scarcely available in a remote place like Churachandpur
(Lamka). This has given much uncalled for burden and headache to students,
particularly financially constraints students.
This Book, I sincerely believe, would immensely help those
sincere and ambitious students to be in a better preparedness for their Second
Semester Examination. Omission and Commission, including typing error etc., if any,
would be rectified in the subsequent publication.
