Politics (Canadian Edition) : An Introduction to the Modern Democratic State Paperback / softback


The latest edition of Politics offers a comprehensive and comparative approach to the essential components of democratic politics in today's states.

The book begins by addressing ways of thinking about politics, community, and society, offering broad outlines of political theory in a historical context.

Johnston then provides a comparative framework for understanding basic democratic systems which is drawn upon in subsequent sections on institutions, the political process, and governing.

The result is an accessible introduction to contemporary democratic politics that is also deeply theoretical and comparative in scope. The fourth edition has been revised throughout and rewritten with a more focused narrative.

The student-friendly design incorporates more visuals and sidebars, as well as chapter objectives and a glossary, in order to make the material easily digestible.

In addition, a new companion website provides self-study support for students along with a wealth of materials for instructors to draw from when developing lectures, tutorials, assignments, and exams.
