An Interactive Dictionary of Political Science Concepts
Fifteen years in the making, Hyperpolitics is an interactive dictionary offering a wholly original approach for understanding and working with the most central concepts in political science. Designed and authored by two of the discipline’s most distinguished scholars, its purpose is to provide its readers with fresh critical insights about what informs these political concepts, as well as a method by which readers—and especially students—can unpack and reconstruct them on their own.
International in scope, Hyperpolitics draws upon a global vocabulary in order to turn complex ideas into an innovative teaching aid. Its companion open access website (www.hyperpolitics.net) has already been widely acknowledged in the fields of education and political science and will continue to serve as a formidable hub for the book’s audience. Much more than a dictionary and enhanced by dynamic graphics, Hyperpolitics introduces an ingenious means of understanding complicated concepts that will be an invaluable tool for scholars and students alike.
“All of this is wonderful, exciting, imaginative, and generous. Hyperpolitics is a great service to many disciplines, not just political science. As an intellectual history of political science, this book is unequalled. This is a pioneering reinvention of the dictionary.”
“By confronting the pervasive failure to teach innovative work with concepts, Hyperpolitics makes a stunning contribution. Calise and Lowi broaden our horizon by creating a new map of conceptual structure that will enlighten scholars and students, challenging them to extend it.”
