Critical Concepts: An Introduction to Politicsintroduces students to the fundamentals of political science, incorporating post-modern ideas and critiques throughout, while integrating the concepts of multiculturalism, feminism, ecology, and other progressive perspectives. Critical Conceptsis a contributed volume that draws on the expertise of many respected Canadian political scientists. Each chapter introduces a critical political concept, describes its importance in the study of politics, and outlines the debates that the concept has engendered in political life and for the discipline of political science. Each chapter also explores how the contemporary political environment challenges the meaning and relevance of these concepts. Ten chapters from the last edition have been removed in this thorough revision, and the new fourth edition has been expanded with 11 all new chapters to enhance its modern appeal.
