Really loved this subject! It was very challenging, but well worth it and genuinely rewarding. The lecturer was great, explained difficult topics in a really easy to understand way and seemed really passionate, and same with the tutors! I definitely recommend, this is one of the best units I've taken at uni by far.

Yes it's hard, yes there's a lot of reading, but if you're after an in-depth, challenging political philosophy course, this is as good as it gets. Alex Lefebvre is an outstanding lecturer and the tutors are brilliant. All of the texts are really fundamental to understanding modern politics and as long as you stay on top of the reading (about 50 pages per week) you'll love it.

I can't believe I didn't drop this unit although I wish I did. If you don't want to do tons of readings, leave it. I found it's quit boring and very theoretical, 4 books to read and most of them spent chapters talking about things without essential meaning. Due date of the final essay was in the middle of exam period, couldn't focus on neither exams nor the essay.
