Summary

Teach students how — not what — to think about politics
REVEL™ for Introduction to Political Science: How to Think for Yourself about Politics helps students gain the skills they need to think critically about a wide range of political topics — and to become more comfortable with politics itself as a result. In order to help introductory students navigate the shifting space of complex ideas that characterizes politics, author Craig Parsons offers a systematic presentation of a wide variety of political practices and ideologies, as well as the differing explanations for why people act as they do. In a time of low trust in government and rising distaste for politics, this fresh overview of political science invites students to engage these subjects in a way that is both supportive and open-minded.

REVEL is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, REVEL is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.

NOTE: REVEL is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone REVEL access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use REVEL.
