Politics - A Complete Introduction: Teach Yourself Paperback


Written by Dr Peter Joyce, who is Principal Lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, Politics: A Complete Introduction is designed to give you everything you need to succeed, all in one place.

It covers the key areas that students are expected to be confident in, outlining the basics in clear jargon-free English, and then providing added-value features like summaries of key books, and even lists of questions you might be asked in your seminar or exam. The book uses a structure that mirrors the way Politics is taught on many university courses.

Chapters include key issues in studying politics, liberal democracy, political ideologies, elections and electoral systems, parties, pressure groups, the media, constitutions, the executive branch of government, bureaucracy, the legislative branch, the judiciary and law enforcement, sub-national government, and supra-national government and the role of the nation state in the modern world.
