A Novel Approach to Politics turns the conventional textbook wisdom on its head. This is a textbook students want to read.

With this new edition, Van Belle brings the book fully up-to-date with recent events, elections, current policy debates, international happenings, and other assorted intergalactic matters. Van Belle adds a wealth of new and recent movies and books to the text, as he illustrates key concepts in political science through examples that captivate students. Employing a wide range of references from 1984 to Game of Thrones to House of Cards, students are given a very solid grounding in institutions, ideology, and economics.

The textbook bits and pieces are still there to aid students-chapter objectives, chapter summaries, bolded key terms, and discussion questions. Retained for this edition, ''The Thinkers in Boxes" feature calls out pivotal political philosophers, theorists, and assorted hipsters.
