Political Science: An Introduction | Fourteenth Edition | 

by Michael G. Roskin Robert L. Cord James A. Medeiros and Walter S. Jones Abhay Prasad Singh Krishna Murari 

Political Science as a discipline seeks to explain entitlement of different stakeholder in a Polity. Roles of individuals, identity groups, Civil society, and institutions of government become vital in this context. Therefore, any book on political Science has to offer both empirical and normative frameworks to help readers gain a comprehensive and verifiable knowledge of the interaction among citizens, Civil society, and the State. Political Science: an introduction seeks to blend scholarship and citizenship. The fourteenth edition continues the eclectic approach that avoids selling any single theory, conceptual framework, or paradigm as the key to political Science. Above all, it still views politics as exciting and tries to communicate that feeling to young people new to the discipline. features:
