Review quote

'Yet another highly useful and timely textbook from Andy Heywood which will instil confidence in students and their teachers.' - Kerrie Carpenter, Head of Social Sciences, St Philomena's School 'Drawing on his experience as a teacher and examiner, Andrew Heywood has written a textbook that will be clear and accessible to all, but that also contains the depth of analysis required for students to reach the higher grades. If you are looking for a single textbook to meet all your students' needs, this is the one! I will be adopting this book.' - Linda Jeffries, Old Palace School 'It does something so essential to the study of politics: it wraps the theory in relevant, up-to-date and interesting examples which engage the student quickly. The lay out is appealing and the way it tackles the subject makes sense with the exam specs in mind.' - Gareth J. Hughes, Head of Government and Politics, Silcoates Schoolshow more
