Filled with big topics that are frequently misunderstood, politics is an inescapable subject, and understanding it better can only make us more responsible citizens and voters. Also the author of Philosophy in Minutes, Marcus Weeks here explains such founding principles as revolution, bureaucracy, constitutions, and government by the people. Along with black and white photographs, the book also includes succinct summaries of the views of Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Rousseau, and Marx, and clarifies the ideologies of fascism, communism, anarchism, and libertarianism. Here too are such contentious subjects as civil rights, migration, climate change, and the theory of the "just war."
