Summary

A brief, accessible, but fairly sophisticated overview of political science that encourages critical, independent thinking, ANALYZING POLITICS, Fourth Edition, presents a clear outline of the discipline of political science. This text is notable for its early coverage of methods and theory and the use of a case study approach--introduced and used to acquire in-depth information about a particular subject while also pointing to its limitations. While the text covers fundamental concepts with contemporary, political examples, discussions of feminism and environmentalism offer a distinct departure from other texts and a unique opportunity to you as a political science student.
