not yet rated|write a review
The fourth edition of Studying Politics is a comprehensive text engagingly written by leading scholars in each of the "four fields" of Political Science - Political Thought, International Relations, Comparative Politics and Canadian Politics - and seamlessly integrated in that the book speaks with one cohesive voice. Perfect for an introductory course in political science, it continues to incorporate the best of the traditional approaches and subject matter of the discipline and at the same time illustrates the rapidly changing patterns of domestic and global politics of our times. A new chapter has been added on the Political Economy approach to Political Science because of the increasing prominence of that subfield. Each of the fourth edition's chapters has been revised to reflect important and sometimes controversial developments, such as the 2011 Canadian federal election, the British coalition government, and the ever-increasing forces of globalization throughout the world.
