How should political life and organization be studied? In this book Johnson takes a critical look at what is offered at British universities as politics, political science, or government. He identifies two principal idioms of political study: politics as current affairs and the activity of politicians, and politics as political science, and concludes that political study as now conceived and practiced fails to provide the intellectual rigor called for in higher education. This study will be of interest to all students and scholars involved in the social sciences.
