Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:

This highly successful introduction to the world of politics has been fully revised and updated in collaboration with a new co-author, Nigel Jackson, to explore the varieties of political systems, the main political movements and key issues at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The new edition builds on the reputation for clarity and comprehensive coverage of the previous editions.

New to the fourth edition:

  • more international examples
  • greater discussion of non-Western concepts of politics
  • the problem of voter apathy and lack of trust in politicians
  • more discussion of the ‘war on terrorism'
  • extended analysis of the role of the Internet in politics including blogs and e-democracy
  • analysis of further key concepts such as genocide and policy networks
  • comparison of quantitative and qualitative methods
  • more links to Web pages.

Accessible in style and topical in content, this book assumes no prior knowledge in politics. These features make it ideal reading to the general reader and especially to those who are just beginning to study politics at undergraduate level.
