2.0 out of 5 stars kindle edition
Interesting book but a poor implementation on the kindle. Unable to change font size or set bookmarks or read in landscape. More like a scanned image of the pages than a proper kindle ebook conversion.

This review is from: The Politics Book (Hardcover)
This is an exciting, intellectually stimulating and comprehensive guide to politics.
After an excellent brief introduction there are chapters on Ancient Political Thought(800BCE - 30CE); Medieval politics(30CE - 1515CE); Rationality and Enlightenment(1515 - 1770); Revolutionary Thoughts(1770 - 1848); The Rise of the Masses(1848 - 1910); The Clash of Ideologies(1910 - 1945) & Post-War politics(1945 - Present).
The book concludes with a Directory giving brief outlines of 37 political thinkers not covered in the main text and a Glossary of political terms.
'The Politics Book' is a beautifully illustrated, jargon-free guide to an important subject which should appeal to the general reader as well as students of politics.

This book is well written and structured. My daughter has used it continuously on her business degree. The facts and illustrations are fist class.
The author has made what to most people is a boring subject interesting and informative.

Does what it says on the tin ... Simple as that. Politics is definitely more than just Prime Minister's Question Time.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this DK- series books!, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Politics Book (Hardcover)
It gives a - relatively - complete history of the topic(politics). Its language is simple , easy to read and follow the ideas. The illustrations are amazing and witty. As I wrote previously about the other titles of this series, it is a good starting point to get to know what politics is about and because it is a good book it urges one to get more involved in this topic or others , like psychology etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Overview of some of the main Political Ideologies, 1 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Politics Book (Hardcover)
This book is very good for beginners to political theory as well as novices. It is clear and to the point. It runs chronologically and although missing a few prominent theories, it has done a great job on the ones it has included. I find myself referencing this book at uni when I need to refresh on a political theory/theorist.

This review is from: The Politics Book (Kindle Edition)
A good reference work on politics which would be a reader introduction for a teenager. Unfortunately this doesn't work as a kindle book. It's not possible to get the text large enough to read comfortably. Even if you could, navigation would be very difficult. This is a shame as the text, style and content is first class.
