Introduction to Political Concepts by Paul Graham
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This student friendly introduction to contemporary concepts and ideas will show why an understanding of political concepts is crucial to an understanding of political issues. By using real-life examples to relate political ideas to political realities, the hugely experienced author team make the subject lively and contentious in order to stimulate students to think about political theories in a new and refreshing way. Introduction to Political Concepts discusses traditional concepts such as state, liberty and justice. Using exposition and argument, the book enables readers to understand these traditional concepts and to develop a position on them. It also covers contemporary concepts, such as difference, human rights and terrorism, where the problems that these concepts address have either developed recently or have been given a new urgency by contemporary events. Suitable for 1st and 2nd year undergraduates studying political theory.
