“Must be considered one of the most enlightening essays on the character of European politics that has appeared in half a century… powerful and vivid.”—Times Literary Supplement “Thirty-five years ago few could have predicted that The New Science of Politics would be a best-seller by political theory standards. Compressed within the Draconian economy of the six Walgreen lectures is a complete theory of man, society, and history, presented at the most profound and intellectual level…Voegelin’s [work] stands out in bold relief from much of what has passed under the name of political science in recent decades…The New Science is aptly titled, for Voegelin makes clear at the outset that a ‘return to the specific content’ of premodern political theory is out of the question…The subtitle of the book, An Introduction, clearly indicates that The New Science of Politics is an invitation to join the search for the recovery of our full humanity.”—From the new foreword by Dante Germino “One of the most distinguished interpreters to Americans of the non-liberal streams of European thought…brilliant insights.”—American Political Science Review

Can citizens and students creatively address the future of politics? Challenge gives students an avenue to explore the impact of philosophy and ideology, to recognize major forms of government, to evaluate empirical findings, and to understand how policy issues affect people's lives. Throughout, the authors Neal Riemer, Douglas W. Simon, and Joseph Romance look at political dynamics of American, comparative, and international affairs. Based on reviewer feedback, revision highlights include: Major streamlining to chapters 7 and 13 Coverage of events like the global financial crisis, recent elections in the U.S. and elsewhere, and the aftermath of the Arab Spring

In this fourth edition Neal Riemer and Douglas W. Simon again seek to introduce students to the challenging discipline of political science by highliting six cardinal features. The editors strongly believe that their unique and comprehensive approach, employing those six features, can best equip students of political science to stay abreast of the ever-changing, and ever-challenging, world of politics. First and most important Riemer and Simon affirm the importance of addressing the three main concerns of political science: political and philosophy and ethics, empirical/behavioral political science, and public policy. Second, the authors reaffirm their normative preference for politics as a civilizing enterprise, one that enables people in the political community live better, to grow robustly in mind and spirit, and to find creative fulfillment. The fourth cardinal feature requires to recognize realistically the ever-chaning nature of politics and the tasks of assessing and responding to changing values. The sixth cardinal feature of The New World of Politics is understanding the importance of keeping the future in mind--not only the immediate future, but the long-range future. This book seeks to introduce students to political science as a discipline intimately involved with ethics, emprical social scientific inquiry, and public policy. Neal Riemer and Douglas W. Simon are endeavoring to help students respond to those future problems with understanding and wisdom. A Collegiate Press book

"Studying Politics starts out with a gentle introduction to the subject of politics and political science--especially appealing to those who may not have formally encountered this discipline before--and then maintains an even presentation of the subject, avoiding confusing jargon and continuing to engage the reader throughout. Its conceptual/comparative approach works outward from Canada to other industrialized developed democracies, then to the developing world and finally to the global scene. With Studying Politics, events that once felt like moving targets will settle easily into the students' broader context, and provide readers with a better understanding of the dynamics that keep our political spectrum fluid and fascinating. This text continues to highlight topical and controversial issues in political science from across the four-fields --Political Thought, International Relations, Comparative Politics and Canadian Politics--including cultural pluralism, women's issues, globalization, political development, terrorism, regime change, and an expanded discussion of Islamic political theory, Sharia law, and the Islamic role in world affairs."--
