Politics: A Very Short Introduction



Very short book with very dense contents, which is worth a second read. One thing I remembered is at the very end of the book. The author noted the change in the word “politics”. It was used to be defined as the “cannots” of a government, the boundary of a power. Now “politics” is everywhere. By being vegetarian you are probably expressing a political opinion, or by watching some news channels, or by your sexual orientation. The author warned about the risk of framing everything as political is that the power of the government can now influence what people can and cannot do in every action of their life. 


Overall, I would recommend this book if you are interested in political science.
