About the Author:

Andrew Heywood is the author of such bestselling texts as Global Politics, Political Ideologies and Political Theory, used by hundreds of thousands of students around the world.

Review:

'A remarkable textbook - and even better in this enhanced and redesigned new edition! Balanced and authoritative, and very effectively supported with informative and insightful text boxes, Politics provides a wonderfully accessible and comprehensive introduction to the subject.' - Jonathon W. Moses, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway.

'If you want to understand what politics can do, what it can't do and how it works I can think of no better starting point. This new edition more than ever succeeds in bringing the subject to life for those coming to the subject for the first time while offering fresh insights and perspectives for all.' - Gerry Stoker, University of Southampton, UK

'I am a huge fan! This is how the subject should be taught - with full coverage of politics and government but sensitive to theoretical issues, informed by history and broader economic and social trends, and encouraging engagement with the key debates of our times. This is a great place to start putting together what is needed to become a fully-rounded political scientist.' - David Coates, Wake Forest University, USA
Reviews of previous edition:

'Politics is simply the best introductory guide available for the subject. Andrew Heywood defines the theory and practice of politics in a rigorous, lively and highly accessible way. This book is indispensable for any student of politics and a "must" for introductory reading lists for politics tutors.' - Professor Jon Tonge, University of Liverpool, UK

'In addition to Heywood's accessible style of writing, the book certainly benefits from many of the pedagogical features incorporated into the text. The sets of questions, outlining of key concepts, mini biographical profiles of specific philosophers and important people, focus boxes, diagrammatic representations and suggestions for further reading are all valuable, informative features and aide-memoires.' - Dr Jacqui Briggs, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Lincoln, UK

'I have enjoyed using Politics and find it a font of knowledge at my finger tips.' - Dr Rae Nicholl, University of South Pacific, Fiji

'Overall, Politics offers a thorough and solid overview of the essential material for an introduction to political science or comparative politics.' - Professor Joel D. Wolfe, University of Cincinnati, USA
