Bernard Crick's "In defence of Politics" is a good introduction to pluralism.(Original post by 123banana123)
Ah okay, thanks for the reply.
Sorry to bring this issue up again, but what books would you recommend me to read before I apply? E.g. which specific books give the best preparation for the course.
Thanks so much!
Jonathan Wolff's "An introduction to Political Philosophy"
And then ask your teacher about extra reading relevent to your history A level course, because unless you did Tudors/The Russian Revolution/ Nazi Germany, I can't advise you on that.
Might be worth getting some stuff on historiography, which is basically the philosophy of history EH Carr's "What is History" and G Elton's "The Practice of History" are the standard introductions to the topic.
