POLITICS IN A CHANGING WORLD introduces you to the diverse discipline of political science by providing a foundation for understanding political life in a systematic and comparative way. The text covers the fundamental political science subject areas (legislative, executive, judicial, and bureaucratic institutions, political parties, voting, interest groups, political culture and ideology), and then illustrates them in a series of brief country studies. Not only will POLITICS IN A CHANGING WORLD help you acquire a better understanding of the actors and institutions that play a part in diverse political systems, you will gain a sense of the political choices people make, the causes and consequences of war, and the stakes of politics.
