This useful book covers all the key concepts in political science (e.g. ideology, political mobilization), explains specialized terms like impeachment and 'glasnost', and surveys the major political belief systems and power structures of the modern world. Readable and comprehensive, it will be helpful to both the political-science student and the general reader. Bealey doesn't include political biographies but there is a biographical appendix of the Western world's political scientists, both present and past, which extends back to Grotius, Holves and Aristotle.
