Political Ideals was written during the upheaval of World War One.  It is, in many ways, a statement, of Russell’s beliefs, a declaration of the ideas that influenced his thinking on the major events of the twentieth century. 

In this sense, it is essential reading for every student of this great philosopher.  For it defines his principle that the only true aim of politics is to give free play to man’s natural creativity, and to deaden, whenever they manifest themselves, the forces of acquisition, power and convention that jeopardise individual responsibility and freedom.
