Politics and Political Change

Edited by Robert I. Rotberg

Hardcover $67.50 S £46.95
Paperback $27.00 X £21.00




Politics and political change are the staples of history. This collection shows how the study of past politics can be deepened by theory and practice from political science, sociology, and economics, and how the application of quantitative methods to received assumptions can expand our understanding of all political history. The contributions cross continents and range in time from the medieval period to the modern. The wide-ranging topics include political confessionalism, urban voter fraud, and methods of electing popes.
