Political Science Today

Wendy N. Whitman Cobb,

Political Science Today
 
 

Political science has changed; the way students learn has changed; so too should the way it’s taught. This is political science, today. 

Political Science Today by Wendy Whitman Cobb gives you a holistic view of the subfields that make up political science by dedicating one chapter to each of the topics at the core of the discipline. Unlike denser texts on the market, Political Science Today uses a field-based approach that allows you to engage with the material directly and dig into each of the discipline’s diverse subfields while also developing critical thinking skills, discerning the differences between politics and political science, conducting and consuming research, and broadening your future career aspirations. 

The book’s innovative table of contents begins with foundational tools like theories and research methods, then builds up to subfield chapters on Comparative Politics, International Relations, American Government, Political Economy, and Public Policy and Administration. Current case studies throughout the text provide a backdrop for engaging classroom discussions on topics such as President Trump’s travel ban, ISIS as a state, and strengths and weaknesses of the United Nations.  This unique approach provides short segments of topic coverage, plenty of summarizing content and review questions, as well as comprehensive learning objectives which will help you understand the realities of political science today.
