Summary
Offers a comprehensive survey of the discipline from political theories, ideologies, and attitudes to political systems, interactions, and processes that prepares students to become more active citizens and to take future courses in political science. Emphasizes an eclectic approach to understanding politics rather than a single theory, conceptual framework, or paradigm that encourages students to think critically. Uses a wide range of examples from the United States and around the world to give students real-life illustrations of political science concepts. Develops a broader base of knowledge through three unique boxed features: ''How To'' boxes explain the basic methods used by scholars to create a systematic understanding of politics. ''Classic Works'' boxes introduce the ideas of seminal thinkers in the field. ''Key Concepts'' boxes demonstrate applications of important political science concepts. Teaches students the language of political science through an extensive marginal glossary. Incorporates chapter-opening questions, photos, maps, figures, tables, and end-of-chapters lists of key terms and suggested readings to help students engage the text.
