ANDREW HEYWOOD is Vice Principal, Croydon College, and A-Level Chief Examiner in Government and Politics. He is author of Political Ideologies, Political Theory and Key Concepts in Politics.Review:
'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 and Chair of the Political Studies Association of the 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
