CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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.
