Description - Understanding Democratic Politics by Roland Axtmann
Understanding Democratic Politics is aimed and designed for first-time students of politics. It provides an ideal introduction and survey to the key themes and issues central to the study and understanding of democratic politics today. Understanding Democratic Politics is structured around three major parts: 'concepts', 'institutions and political behaviour'; and 'ideologies and movements'. Each part contains a series of concise and accessible chapters that introduce the key concepts, institutional forms and political ideas or conflicts that have underpinned the development of modern democracies. Designed and written for an undergraduate readership, each chapter contains 'bullet-point' summaries, a guide to further reading, and set of questions for tutorial discussion. It will form an essential guide and companion to all students of politics both on introductory courses and throughout their undergraduate degree.
