The brainchild of Canadian political theorists -- for want of
a better term, make that postmodern political theorists
-- Arthur and Marilouise Kroker. CTHEORY is "an international
journal of theory, technology, and culture, publishing articles,
interviews, event-scenes and reviews of key books." Given
the Kroker's penchant for a jargon-laden, hipper-than-thou style
of theorizing, I wouldn't normally consider listing CTHEORY as
a resource for this course. Recently, however, CTHEORY has begun
offering no charge downloads of complete books, including reprints
from Montreal's New World Perspectives press. Among the books
on offer is William Leiss's C.B.
Macpherson: Dilemmas of Liberalism and Socialism (1988) --
a well-regarded intellectual biography of Macpherson. By all means
browse around the CTHEORY site. You may find something that tickles
your intellectual fancy. But for sure grab yourself a free digital
copy of Leiss's book.
site has become slightly more mainstream and "news magazine"
like over the last year, but it still features articles and discussion
on topical issues, often of very good quality. Big names on the
UK political theory scene (Roger Scruton, Steven Lukes, David
Held) often contribute and feedback from readers is encouraged
