Overview

This book introduces beginning students to the broad issues of political science through a general survey rather than the study of a particular country. The authors acquaint students with the intellectual enterprise of analyzing politics by presenting the vocabulary of classic political theory and contemporary political science, and introducing the major figures in the history of political analysis, from the ancients to leading social critics of our time. They illustrate each concept with an actual political example current enough to engage students' attention and emotions.
