About this title

Synopsis:

From the award-winning team behind the International Encyclopedia of Political Science

Moving beyond mainstream "traditional" approaches to bring you a new advanced-level introduction to political science.

 

Political Science: A Global Perspective is a perfect introduction for postgraduates who are new to political science, as well as upper-level undergraduates looking to broaden and deepen their understanding of core topics.

This progressive account:

  • Guides readers through all key areas of political science: origins, methodological foundations, key topics, and current issues
  • Takes an international and pluralist perspective with all issues explored in a comparative way related to different cultural and historical contexts
  • Includes pulled-out descriptions of major concepts, further reading and self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter
