From the award-winning team behind the International Encyclopaedia of Political Science...
Moving beyond mainstream “traditional” approaches to bring you a new advanced-level introduction to political science.
A perfect introduction for postgraduates who are new to political science, as well as upper-level undergraduates looking to broaden and deepen their understanding of core topics, this progressive account:
- Guides you through all key areas of political science: origins, methodological foundations, key topics, and current issues
- Takes an international and pluralist perspective with all issues explored in a comparative way related to different cultural and historical contexts
- Includes pulled-out descriptions of major concepts, further reading and self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter.
