Summary:The Blackwell Dictionary of Political Science is a clear and lively introduction to the terminology of political science for students and general readers. The book comprises rigorous definitions and explanations of key terms (eg marxism) presented in an engaging style, cross-referenced, and easily accessible to readers new to the subject. It includes short biographies of the most eminent writers in the discipline - both classical (eg Mill) and modern (eg Hayek). The book is unique in combining a single author's overview and minimal assumptions about the reader's prior knowledge of the discipline.
