Political Science: An Introduction presents a survey of different political paradigms, viewpoints and theories. Authors Michael Roskin, Robert Cord, James Medeiros and Walter Jones gear the text toward those learning about the topic for the first time. A balanced presentation of theoretical abstractions and applied reasoning equips you to make calm, rational choices and protect yourselves from political manipulation.
The Updated 14th Edition offers coverage of many of the recent developments that have impacted politics in the US and abroad. Important events that receive coverage include the rise of demagogic populism, the effects of social media on politics and the increase in political participation by women in the 2016 and 2018 US elections.
