Summary: Analytical Politics is an introduction to analytical theories of politics, explicitly designed for undergraduate classes and for the professional interested in an overview. Analytical Politics tries to explain why societies take the political decisions they do and focuses on evaluating these decisions. We cannot evaluate how well governments perform without some baseline for comparison: What should governments be doing? The main questions in Analytical Politics invol
ve the existence and stability of the center. An understanding of these issues is essential for anyone who hopes to evaluate the performance or predict the actions of democratic government. This book reviews and explains introductory formal theory in political science. The basis of formal theory is the spatial model. Melvin Hinich was one of the main creators of spatial political theory in the 1960's. In 1984 he published The Spatial Theory of Voting, with James Enelow. Analytical Politics updates this earlier work, and makes it accessible to a much broader audience. Most important, this is the first book to examine the foundations of spatial theory in the classic political theories of Aristotle, Hobbes, and Rousseau.
