Abstract:

"The second Canadian edition of Introduction to Politics offers an uniquely international introduction to the discipline. Written by top scholars from Canada, the UK, and Australia, the text covers fundamental political concepts and ideologies before examining political institutions through historical and comparative perspectives, and then providing an overview of international relations--a subfield of politics of increasing interest in a globalized world. Intellectually stimulating yet accessible, this engaging introduction gives students everything they need to hone their critical thinking skills and deepen their understanding of how politics affects life in Canada and around the world. With increased content on alternatives to mainstream western ideologies, Indigenous peoples, and minority groups, this new edition provides an inclusive, wide-ranging introduction to politics giving Canadian students a comprehensive understanding of the issues and ideas in the field today."--
