New Publication for Professor Michael Freeden

The fruits of a conference held by the Centre for Political Ideologies have now been published as a book edited by Michael Freeden: The Meaning of Ideology: Cross-Disciplinary Perspectives (Routledge, 2007).
This is the first collection to bring together leading scholars from diverse disciplines to offer a variety of perspectives on ideology and its analysis, emphasizing the input of different intellectual and scholarly traditions to the meaning of ideology. The chapters explore commonalities in the use and understanding of ideology as well as delineating constructive differences in its interpretation, while illuminating the changes that the concept of ideology, as well as the practices it signifies, have undergone in recent years. Contributions are included from the fields of political theory, history, literature, political science, cultural studies, post-Marxism, discourse analysis, language studies, law, and sociology.

Michael Freeden is Professor of Politics, University Lecturer, Director of the Centre for Political Ideologies, Professorial Fellow, Mansfield College.
