No ... scratch that. This is actually the best political science textbook I've ever read at any level. (Though it does happen to be an introductory-level text.) The next time I teach an introductory comparative politics course, I really hope to be able to use this textbook, and I'd recommend it to any poli-sci professor who is teaching a freshman-level "Intro to Politics," "Intro to Political Science," or "Intro to Comparative Politics" course. It has amazing breadth, introducing students to just about every major concept we study in the field of political science, without sacrificing depth. (It's a pretty big book.) The only thing it really lacks that I'd like to have seen included is a discussion of political science as a discipline – how we political scientists go about studying political phenomena, and how we came to discover the various things we know about politics – but perhaps that's a bit too much to ask from an intro-level text on "politics" (rather than an intro-level text on "political science scope and methods"). This text will teach the novice reader just about everything that a non-political scientist needs to know about politics in general and will provide the new poli-sci major with a solid foundation to be built upon in upper-level courses. Note that this text is about politics in general and is not limited to a discussion of politics in any particular country or any particular type of government; it draws on examples from around the world, though it gives more attention to the Anglophone world (UK, US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) and to Western Europe than to other parts of the globe. (The textbook was published in the UK, but it is quite suitable for use in American universities or, for that matter, in any university where English is the language of instruction.) It does not provide a detailed description of any country's political system, only a general discussion of political concepts; so if you're planning on using this text in an intro comparative politics course, you might want to consider supplementing it with other material that covers the details of how various countries are governed.

The book is divided into twenty chapters covering the following broad topics:
1. What is Politics?
2. Political Ideas and Ideologies
3. Politics and the State
4. Democracy and Legitimacy
5. Nations and Nationalism
6. Political Economy and Globalization
7. Politics, Society and Identity
8. Political Culture and the Media
9. Representation, Elections and Voting
10. Parties and Party Systems
11. Groups, Interests and Movements
12. Governments, Systems and Regimes
13. Political Executives and Leadership
14. Assemblies
15. Constitutions, Law and Judges
16. Public Policy and Bureaucracy
17. Multilevel Politics
18. Security: Domestic and International
19. World Order and Global Governance
20. A Crisis in Politics?

This textbook is well-written, easy to follow, and visually appealing. Scattered throughout the text are helpful illustrations (photos and diagrams), definitions of key terms in the margins, and various "boxed" features that either elaborate on or provide context for the concepts discussed in the text and that may help stimulate discussion and debate among your students. The layout of this book is similar in many ways to that of Heywood's excellent "Political Ideologies" textbook (which I've also reviewed here on Amazon), though I'm glad to report that this textbook doesn't have anywhere near as many typos as that one did. Andrew Heywood has really impressed me as a writer of political science textbooks, and I hope to read (and review) even more of his books in the not-too-distant future.

I read this book as part of a college course on politics. I was taking the course at age 42, so I'm not the typical student for this material. I had already voted in many elections, worked with my rep to get a bill created, and participated in other government related activities. So I was already familiar with much of what was said.

The book does a reasonably good job of going over what can be fairly dense and complex material. It covers all the bases from types of government to types of constitutions, how voting happens, how assemblies handle delegation, and more. It talks about how studying politics can be challenging because there's no safe way to "experiment" to see what happens. Governments have actual effects over the lives of millions of people.

I have a few issues with the book. First, it makes it seem as if studying politics is wildly different from studying any other thing on the planet Earth. Maybe every book tries to do this, to seem like "studying biology is great!" and "studying English classic literature is great!" Still, I find it a bit silly. Yes, politics is unique just like every other field is unique. It poses its own challenges just like every field has challenges.

This edition was apparently published in 2007 and it is WOEFULLY out of date when it talks about some middle east issues. I realize that things change fairly quickly in some parts of the world, but when the book is talking about politics it needs to be kept up to date. There really should be a fresh edition of this, or if they don't intend to update it regularly it shouldn't try to talk about specific situations that could change.

Also, I have a pet peeve with expensive college textbooks having typos in them. We're paying the oodles of money for something that has been thoroughly proofread. I'm fine with typos in the solo author Kindle books that I review. I realize they don't have editorial support to do that type of polishing. This book should definitely have the editorial support to fix typos.

Still, a generally good overview of a topic that can be complex.

This review is based on the book, and I believe you will find it helpful.

I'm not a Political Science student, I study Computer Science but Politics has been one of my top interests for many years now. I have heard about the book from a friend and thought of adding it to my library, thus I bought it.

The book starts out with what is Politics and what it's not! Handing out many precious definitions and principles in a knowledgable yet simplified language... After that, the author takes it one level and explores (with a Lateral Reasoning appraoch) the side-walks of Politics, it's branches, and how one might appraoch it: Which is either (basically) through Philosophical Reasoning or Scientifical (Theoritical) Understanding and Research.

The book follows up and teaches you how the already explained principles form what are known as Political Ideologies... It appraoches it's end while debating the applications and roles of Politics and how it affects the everyday living of every individual.

Well, honestly, the book gives more than that, but I think that's what you need to know in order to get motivated about how well this book will serve you as an introduction and/or a rivision of Politics as it has served me, frankly speaking.

Thank you.
Have yet to get into it as it's a required text for uni studies, looks good tho'.
