Synopsis

Doing Politics by Jacqui Briggs

Aimed at politics students in their final year of secondary education or beginning their degrees, this highly readable book is the ideal introduction to politics. Doing Politics is a detailed guide to both the study and the activity of politics, which explores why we study politics, what is involved in a politics degree, and the skills and mindset that are needed to tackle the subject. Key questions are answered, including: * Just what is politics and how does it affect us? * Why does politics, and why do politicians, get a bad press? * How do we study non-traditional forms of politics? Assuming no prior knowledge, this lively and engaging guide is the perfect introduction to the academic study of politics.
