Question about the types of political culture due to a variety of political systems, the difference in the level of socio-economic, political and cultural development of countries and their historical traditions, resulting is the diversity of political cultures, nations, social communities, individuals. There are different ways of classifying political cultures. At the heart of the Marxist approach to the classification of political cultures is the position that exist within the same type of society political cultures have common essential features.Accordingly distinguishes types of political cultures of the slave, feudal and bourgeois society.

In fact, the closest modern equivalent of such political culture may be the relations that exist in African tribes.
