This classic text is a well-integrated and comprehensive account of the essential principles of political theory and organization.

It presents a consistent thesis that the State exists for the benefit of the individual and not the individual for the State. It provides critical as well as factual discussions on:

Form of government and inter-state relations against the background of fundamental political concepts, such as liberty, quality, law and sovereignty;

The history of government from the days of Greek city-states to modern times;

The modern constitutions of the UK, the USA, the French Republic, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, and India;Principles of governmental organization, its structure and working.

As a clear, well-written and modern introduction to politics, this book serves as a primary textbook for students of political science. Hugely successful in its previous printings, it is also useful for the general reader looking for a lucid exposition of the basic ideas of politics.
