Long DescriptionThe objective of the book is to present concepts and ideas alongside a brief discussion of the application of those matters to issues and to institutions in British politics. Wherever possible, British case studies and examples are used, but, where this is not possible an overseas example is included. The book is intended to be an introduction; to stimulate interest and to provide a means of getting to grips with some of the most difficult ideas in human society. It examines the concepts which are central to politics and provides some limited applications of these concepts to given case studies; seeks to give the reader a basic introduction to theoretical work on a variety of political ideas and to illustrate these theories with the ideas of some of the major political philosophers; and attempts to provide initial linkages between the theories and concepts which have gone before and the main concerns of modern British politics. Each chapter is divided into several distinct sections: basic principles, discussing the arguments, case studies, examination questions and further reading.

Article of interest

Due to the winter storm here in Salem Oregon, we went off-line at around 1am on Saturday February 13th.

We have battery backups, commercial level internet and off-site redundant backups. But because most of the county lost power and our battery backups only last a couple hours, our servers all shut down. Internet in the area was out as well due to the ice storm. Trees took out power lines, phone lines and internet lines all over the state.

We restored power to the building through the use of a generator, but the internet was still off-line until crews could restore the cables.

We are still experiencing some intermittent issues because the servers didn't get a totally clean shutdown when the power went out and recovery checks are taking a long time to examine all of the drives.

Things should be back to normal soon.

Sorry for the trouble.
