Critical Concepts: An Introduction to Politics introduces students to the fundamentals of political science, incorporating post-modern ideas and critiques throughout, while integrating the concepts of multiculturalism, feminism, ecology, and other progressive perspectives.  Critical Concepts is a contributed volume that draws on the expertise of many respected Canadian political scientists.  Each chapter introduces a critical political concept, describes its importance in the study of politics, and outlines the debates that the concept has engendered in political life and for the discipline of political science.  Each chapter also explores how the contemporary political environment challenges the meaning and relevance of these concepts.  The fourth edition is now comprised of 27 chapters with 11 all-new chapters enhancing its currency and  contemporary appeal.
