    Introduction to Political Science: An Anthology provides students with significant scholarly literature in the discipline to familiarize them with various aspects of and themes within political science.

    Opening chapters introduce students to the study of politics, a variety of ideological perspectives, and the concept of nationalism. Dedicated chapters speak to the concepts of democracy, anarchism, socialism, and fascism. Students develop a deeper understanding of the legislative branch of government, the presidency, and the federal judiciary. Additional readings discuss bureaucracy, political socialization, interest groups, and political parties and elections. The anthology concludes with a discussion of revolution. For each chapter, introductions and key terms provide readers with valuable context and critical vocabulary. Thought-provoking discussion questions encourage critical thought, lively conversation, and further exploration of the selected texts and concepts.

    Providing students with a concise overview of the discipline, Introduction to Political Science is an ideal resource for foundational courses.
