about

The fifth 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. The text is crafted in a language that students will find accessible and relevant - that speaks to the complexity of the political world in which they live (whether they realize it or not), provides them with touchstones and tools to see patterns where others may see confusion, and offers solutions where others may offer resignation. The text seeks to encourage students to see politics as an important and productive part of their lives, and as a sphere of human behaviour that they can - and ought to - engage. Today's students are perhaps the most globally oriented and connected generation that we have ever seen, and they view the world in ways that readily transcend traditional borders and categories. As such, this edition of Studying Politics has further weaved in comparative and global dimensions, even as it retains a core focus on Canada and Canadians.
