The book offers an accessible and very comprehensive survey of the major ideas and concepts encountered in politics. Each chapter discusses a cluster of related terms, exploring how they have been used by different thinkers and traditions, and examining the debates and controversies that have sprung up around them. Lucidly written and clearly structured, the book provides an ideal introduction to politics and political theory.
