This is book number 21 in the Political Analysis series.

A broad-ranging and pluralistic textbook which highlights the rich variety of approaches to studying politics. Written by an international team of experts, this fully revised fourth edition offers cutting-edge coverage from fundamental to contemporary issues. Integrating guides to further reading and clear examples of how research methods can be applied, it enables readers to feel confident about taking their study of politics forward.

An ideal foundation for study and research in political science, this textbook will be essential to students at any stage of their degree. It serves as core reading on undergraduate and postgraduate political analysis, theory and methods courses. In demonstrating how independent research is undertaken in political science, the book allows students and early career researchers to begin thinking about formulating their own research agendas.

This new edition:
- Leads the way with fresh new ideas and perspectives with the help of new co-editor Vivien Lowndes
- Includes new chapters on post-structuralism as a theoretical approach and on 'big data' as a methodological resource
- Offers an international perspective on political science, with discussion of global as well as domestic politics and a range of international cases and examples.
