Introduction to Political Science: How to Think for Yourself about Politics helps you gain the skills you need to think critically about a wide range of political topics, which will help you become more comfortable with politics itself. Guiding you through the shifting space of complex ideas that characterizes politics, author Craig Parsons offers a systematic presentation of various political practices and ideologies, as well as the differing explanations for why people act as they do.
The 2nd Edition has been updated to reflect issues that have dominated recent headlines, including the US government shutdown of early 2019, the evolving varieties of authoritarianism and worldwide tensions over migration.
