As a Graduate of Political Sciences, I always needed a collection of the works of major political thinkers throughout the history. This will be a sticky topic to find the major works of political philosophy. Afterwards, we can read each work and discuss on them. Don't hesitate to contribute. Here's the first ones:
 
PLATO:
 
 
Apology, Crito And Phædo Of Socrates: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/13726/13726-h/13726-h.htm

T.W. Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, Walter Benjamin were the most important members of the pre-war Frankfurter Schule, and of the immediate post-war period.
Current and last representative of the original is Juergen Habermas.

    to kotum:

nice idea this thread's great.

Besides, did you ever read Habermas? Have you understood anything? Do you think anything is interesting in what he says or that he is an old dinosaur that belongs to the great book of the great mistakes of humakind along with Ne-yo, English food and Sofia Coppola?

In fact, yes I read Habermas about 5 years ago; at that time I thought he was reasonable about the legitimacy crisis of the capitalist state but I don't remember much now, I have to read again. By the way, I wonder why do you see him as such a great mistake like others?Wink
