Political Science: An Introduction, eBook, Global Edition

Námskeið 301.6.0 ISOS Stjórnmál og stjórnkerfi. Ensk lýsing: For courses in Introduction to Political Science.   Explore the Fundamentals of Political Science Political Science: An Introduction shows students how the fundamental tenets of political science have helped important leaders make critical decisions for centuries. The authors present a balance of theoretical abstractions and applied reasoning to help students understand how to make calm, rational choices when it comes to political manipulation.   The Fourteenth Edition asks students to explore the controversial topic of exported democracy, and whether certain countries are ready and equipped to apply our form of government. By examining issues such as the Iraq war and the difficulty of adapting our own democracy in the U. S. , the text prompts students to form their own opinions about democracy and political science. Geared toward those learning about the topic for the first time, the authors encourage students to consider different paradigms, viewpoints, and theories when developing their own political views.   MyPoliSciLab ® not included. Students, if MyPoliSciLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyPoliSciLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
