Product description

Book Description

This highly popular textbook has been written specifically to meet the needs of A2 students, providing
comprehensive, accessible and up-to-date coverage of core topics in A2 political ideologies.

Carefully structured around the specifications, the textbook combines authoritative discussion with the
latest facts and figures. Frequent Summary boxes and definitions of Key Terms aid comprehension and
revision, while an Exam Focus section at the end of each chapter offers source-based exercises relating to
the text and assignments for extension work, drawing on further reading.

The book reviews all the major ideologies covered in the exam board specifications. Each chapter deals with the
historical development and core values and beliefs of an ideology, explaining key terms and concepts as they are introduced. Brief biographies of the leading exponents of each ideology are provided, and key issues relating to the ideology and its various schools of thought are discussed.

This structure is designed to prepare students for commonly asked exam questions by identifying the important divisions and controversies in each ideology. At the end of each chapter there are a number of typical
examination questions, divided into shortand longer-style essay questions, which will require students to show
understanding of the key issues and debates surrounding the ideology and to make judicious use of examples and quotations.
