Now in its fifth edition, Critical Concepts: An Introduction to Politics challenges readers by exploring current political issues and ethical dilemmas. Focusing on fundamental concepts in political science, each chapter provides readers with the critical perspectives needed to analyze the major issues we face and how political science as a discipline helps us to make sense of them.

        The objective of this edition remains the same as previous editions: to introduce readers to the fundamentals of political science, to engage them with key and enduring debates, and to explore both conceptual continuities and shifts in a world marked by growing insecurity, political upheaval, and global tensions. Critical Concepts remains a contributed volume that draws on the expertise of many well-known and respected Canadian political scientists.
