Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761834842, Paperback)

Originally published under the title, Principles of Politics, this completely revised and updated work is a study of applied political theory using current political society and politics as its backdrop. Politics are based on fundamental theoretical and practical principles that dictate the nature, authority, origin, and purpose of the state. These organizing principles can be found by considering the goals, purposes, and values of ordinary life as well as the depictions of the political world from ancient philosophers and contemporary political scientists.

With detailed explanations and examples, Understanding Principles of Politics and the State examines the political world of democracy; political theory; the discipline of political science; and the multiple aspects of governing, from principles of operation to forms of government. The book also includes a brief case study of the Philippines that illuminates the consideration of constitutionalism; citizenship and rights; the relation of religion and politics, and church and state; and the importance of the fixed principles of politics in today's ever-changing world.
