Understanding Politics: Ideas Institutions And Issues
Magstadt, Thomas M., Ph.D.
Politics is a gateway to a broader and better understanding of human nature, society, and the world. This idea has inspired each edition of Understanding Politics: Ideas, Institutions, And Issues. Thomas Magstadts book provides in-depth coverage of contemporary political issues and calls attention to the more enduring underlying questions. With its intense, engaging politics are pertinent theme and current, cutting-edge coverage, the Eleventh Edition will fascinate you with its coverage of three fundamental premises: politics is a pervasive force in modern society; government is too critically important to be left in the hands of a few; and everyone has both the opportunity and the obligation to participate in public life in a democracy. The Eleventh Edition focuses on such vital concepts as democracy, dictatorship, citizenship, voting behavior, elections, leadership, ideologies, war, revolution, world politics, and public policy.
