This classic text is a well-integrated and comprehensive account of the essential principles of political theory and organization. It presents a consistent thesis that the State exists for the benefit of the individual and not the individual for the State. It provides critical as well as factual discussions on: forms of government and inter-state relations against the background of fundamental political concepts, such as liberty, equality, law and sovereignty; the history of government from the days of Greek city-states to modern times; the modern constitutions of the UK, the USA, the French Republic, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, and India; principles of governmental organization, its structure and working. As a clear, well-written and modern introduction to politics, this book serves as a primary textbook for students of political science at the undergraduate level, for both BA honours and pass courses. Hugely successful in its previous printings, it is also useful for the general reader looking for a lucid exposition of the basic ideas of politics. Printed Pages: 600.
