Summary "Aimed at politics students in their final year of secondary education or beginning their degrees, this immensely readable book is the ideal introduction to studying 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 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 what is actually involved in the academic study of politics"-- Provided by publisher
