5. Iran and the Iranians Like all peoples, Iranians are products of their environment, both spatial and temporal. These have been negotiated, interpreted, and contested over time. The sort of continuities that staunch nationalists like to promote do not reflect the complex inheritance that Iranians carry with them, but it is also true that as a political culture and civilization, the idea of Iran and the Iranians has sustained some striking continuities. This can be seen in the persistence of the language, with words that can be rooted and traced into Old Persian. But it is also present in the

1. Why do we need political philosophy? This is a small book about a big subject, and since a picture is proverbially worth a thousand words I want to begin it by talking about a very large picture that can help us to see what political philosophy is all about. The picture in question was painted between 1337 and 1339 by Ambrogio Lorenzetti, and it covers three walls of the Sala dei Nove in the Palazzo Pubblico of Siena. It is usually called the Allegory of Good and Bad Government , and what Lorenzetti's frescos do is first of

Introduction The Founding Fathers who drafted the U.S. Constitution in 1787 feared political parties, popular democracy, and centralized government. Contrary to these sentiments, the national politics that emerged has been that of intense partisan conflict, the continual expansion of suffrage, and the expansion of federal power. Early on, American politics became a blood sport with political candidates and officeholders assailing opponents in negative, and often, vicious ways, to win votes within an electorate that had increased in size and expressed a multitude of interests. By the 1830s all politicians, whatever their party affiliation, proclaimed themselves democrats and “men of the

4. The politics of slavery: prelude to the Civil War, 1844–60 Moral absolutes and democratic politics are not easily reconciled. By its nature, politics is the practice of compromise, and for those given to moral absolutes, compromise means betrayal of principle. The issue of slavery in late antebellum politics reveals this gap in tragic proportions. For many southerners, owning slaves was a property right upheld by the Constitution. For northern abolitionists, slavery denied the principle that all men—including blacks—were endowed with natural rights of liberty and equality before God. Of course, God’s law was not easily determined by a majoritarian
