    Political science is the study and analysis of the theory and practice of politics. Political theory is about description, observation, analysis and inquiry into the issues of political science. Divided into 15 chapters, Political Theory captures all relevant aspects of political science and analyses them in the light of examples from India and the rest of the world. Through a thorough examination of various political institutions, the role of different social groups and the evolution of our politics, this book will help students understand the basic concepts and notions of political theory, and illustrate how these concepts apply to political systems across the world.
