The relevance of political science, FIRST EDITION.

£24.99

Product description

Paperback, Cover in very good condition except for small tear at the bottom of the front of the book. Used good condition. All pages in a very clean condition.

Publisher: Palgrave, Macmillan Education UK, 2015

What does political science tell us about important real-world problems and issues? And to what extent does and can political analysis contribute to
solutions? Debates about the funding, impact and relevance of political science in contemporary democracies have made this a vital and hotly contested topic of discussion, and in this original text authors from around the world respond to the challenge.A robust defence is offered of the achievements of political science research, but the book is not overly sanguine given its sustained recognition of the need for improvement in the way that political science is done. New insights are provided into the general issues raised by relevance, into blockages to relevance, and into the contributions that the different subfields of political science can and do make. The book concludes with a new manifesto for relevance that seeks to combine a commitment to rigour with a commitment to engagement.
