Political theory inside baseball: I am pretty sure I did not adequately appreciate Peter Euben when I had regular access to him. His essays and books are uniformly useful for both collecting and evaluating all the research on a topic, and then working through the implications of those arguments with, it always seems, some special emphasis on how one might explain it to a reader who has never encountered the text before. For "insightful scholarly comment" to "useful point for discussion with undergrads" ratio, I can't imagine anyone better.
