Description - Political Concepts by Iain MacKenzie
Introduces key political concepts and illustrates them with up-to-date readings A major new textbook offering both an introduction to and readings in key political concepts. This blend of introductory material and contact with up-to-date primary literature will provide Politics students with an ideal textbook for use on courses covering political concepts. The book is based upon the principles of reflecting the nature of politics generally and political philosophy in particular, and current debates within politics. The choice of concepts reflects the interests of political scientists as well as political theorists, and while the survey essays range widely through the history of a given concept, the selection of readings is made from current sources. Organised to reflect the broad nature of politics, there are parts on normative political philosophy, democratic theory, political sociology and emergent paradigms such as poststructuralism and feminism. Each part is prefaced by the editor with a short essay drawing out the links between the essays and selections within and between parts.
The following concepts are introduced: Justice Civil Society Liberty Power Equality Human Nature Rights Community Democracy The Nation Representation Globalisation Toleration Ideology Multiculturalism Discourse The State Difference The Rule of Law The Body Politic
