Accessible and engaging throughout, this introductory text examines politics from a Canadian, comparative, and international perspective. Guiding students through the basics of political ideologies and institutions before moving on to more complex concepts, this text covers essential questions regarding politics, such as who has power in society and why, how might groups participate in political activity, how can we distinguish among so many types of political
systems, how is wealth distributed, and why is conflict so prevalent in the world today?
This newly updated edition includes new coverage of populism, the rebirth of protectionist nationalism, and the politics of climate change, and continues to use current examples and case studies from Canada and around the world.
