An integrated skills textbook that provides a clear outline of the history of democracy and contemporary politics, with a wide range of practice activities.

Written specially for Japanese students by an expert in political science, this book takes a look at democracy around the world from its beginnings in ancient Greece to the modern world. Written in clear, easy-to-understand English, the chapters require no previous knowledge, and will give students a clear understanding of law and politics. A wide variety of comprehension exercises provide practice in basic skills. Students of politics, law and economics will doubtless find this a very useful text for English study, but it will also have wide appeal for non-specialist students of English.
