Introduction to Political Science
Exploring Politics: A Concise Introduction addresses the challenges of teaching and learning introductory concepts in political science. Gaspare M. Genna and Taeko Hiroi’s concise, accessible writing style brings a no-frills approach to the curriculum, allowing instructors to pepper in activities, current events, and lectures while leaning on the text for foundational material required in the course. The book is organized topically to reflect how politics spreads from the individual and group level, to the national, and eventually, the international level.
