The Politics volume assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. For students who have never studied Politics before, it will give an idea of what to expect. For students already studying Politics at school, it will provide a concise but comprehensive learning aid. Part One concentrates on defining Politics, covering key concepts in political analysis and looking at Politics as an academic subject. Part Two covers core subjects taught in most Politics degrees. Topics include political theory, government, and international relations. Part Three tackles the study skills needed at university level and discusses issues such as lectures, tutorials and seminars; writing skills; essays and dissertations; and examinations. It also covers the transferable skills students will gain from the study of Politics and guidance on future employment and careers.

From the Publisher:

The transition between school and university is not an easy one. There are unfamiliar subjects to be studied and even familiar subjects are approached in new ways. The pace of learning is much faster, the volume of written work increases and all the deadlines seem to come at once. And then there are the exams.

This series of books aims to bridge the gap by
· introducing subjects as they are taught at university
· giving an overview of the main sub-disciplines of the subject
· providing some time management strategies
· suggesting how to get the most out of lectures and tutorials
· showing how to write an essay to university standards
· taking some of the agony out of exams
