What is politics? Is it a universal feature of all human societies,
past and present? Is it tied to specific institutional arenas? Or
is it found in all groups and organizations, large or small, formal
This new textbook seeks to provide answers to these important
questions. Starting with what it means to 'think politically', the
book goes on to explore a wide range of meanings attributed to the
concept of politics from a variety of perspectives and theoretical
traditions. It offers succinct and coherent overviews by some of
the foremost scholars in the field, and each invites the reader to
see the activity of politics in a distinctive way. Topics covered
include politics as a form of rule, feminist approaches to
politics, Marxism and politics, the politics of human behaviour,
environmental politics, politics as collective choice, and Islam
Written with the new student in mind, this concise introduction
to the study and activity of politics is essential reading for all
those coming to the discipline for the first time.
