AUTHOR

Lawson, Kay

SUMMARY

This abridged edition offers the same personal, engaging introduction to political science as the full-length text in a shorter format--ideal for professors who incorporate outside readings into their courses. Topics include the nature of politics, political institutions, behavior, and ideologies within a comparative framework. Lawson's accessible writing style aids student comprehension and makes difficult concepts and unfamiliar terms understandable through clear explanations and an end-of-text glossary of key terms. A shift from a state-centered emphasis on interdependence to a broader look at globalization runs throughout the text and includes material on global organizations such as the World Bank, the IMF, and the WTO. In addition, most chapters feature new topics, including terrorism worldwide; the roots of terrorism and how nations guard against it; and post-9/11 issues in the U.S. such as civil rights and public health.Lawson, Kay is the author of 'Human Polity A Comparative Introduction to Political Science', published 2005 under ISBN 9780618425242 and ISBN 0618425241.
