This new text on Political Science is a very advanced intellectual discourse on selected topics in the discipline. It is written by established and renowned scholars who have over the years distinguished themselves as resourceful promoters of the discipline across the globe. Leonardo Morlino and Dirk Berg-Schlosser have both been Presidents of the International Political Science Association (IPSA) at different times. IPSA, under their leadership, organized and held conferences for political scientists from all corners of the world to discuss salient developments in global politics from diverse perspectives. This exposure likely influenced these authors’ decision to write an introductory textbook on Political Science which would synthesize all the outlooks on the core issues of politics with a view to articulating more harmonious and generally acceptable perspectives. The authors’ aim is to provide refreshing insights into such issues as war and peace, prosperity, welfare, sustainable environment, freedom, justice, gender, and democracy under changing cultural perspectives (p. 2). They expressed their desire to provide advanced students of Political Science a succinct overview of the discipline from a truly global perspective (p. 1).
