Politics is the structured set of societal activities which are usually associated with the distribution of status or power to various individuals, for the purpose of ensuring that the societal value is achieved. The field of political science is also known as social science, because the aim of its study is to examine patterns of societal behaviour and politics in the making of public policy. Politics has become a leading and popular subject taught all over the world, even though the number of political scientists is dwindling as the number of students studying it grows. The popularity of political science can be attributed mainly to the growth in social sciences that have made politics as an important part of the education.

Politics may be studied at any point of time. However, at every stage of its development, politics develops three broad phases that have different impacts on the development of the political system. These are interest-group politics, universal interest groups, and majoritarian interest groups. Interest group politics is characterized by the pursuit of common national interest. In universal interest groups, politics is used to promote common social interest and economic welfare. Majoritarian interest groups are defined as groups that exercise a power of authority to decide peacefully and legitimately.

In any polity, politics strives to create and maintain a balance of power between its citizens and its institutions. The basic function of civil society is to participate in politics as an active citizen concerned with the general welfare of the country. Civil society consists of various interest groups who have a common interest in common issues such as, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, protection of minorities, economic policies, etc., and these interests come under civil society.

Politics is organized in different states or jurisdictions. There are many types of political systems in the world. The most common system is represented by democracy. Under democracy, an elected political authority controls the decisions of a consultative assembly or parliament made up of elected representatives from large numbers of people. Democratic politics is a participatory form of politics which makes it a grassroots-based system. An elective government with a consultative assembly cannot make laws that are not specified by a majority of its voters at a referendum.

A second political organization is called autocracy. This system is composed of a single ruler with legitimacy derived through ancestry and/or descent alone. Autocracies have limited constitutional guarantees and are subject to external constraints. International law recognizes only a handful of global governing bodies as legitimate uses of power. For instance, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), the World Trade Organization (WTO), and the European Union (EU) are considered the legitimate political organizations exercising political influence over nations’ decision-making process.

A third political organization is known as communitaire. It is characterized by the existence of numerous political organizations and states within a single geographic area. The stateless societies of the World Wide Web are not technically states, since they lack centralized power and territorial entities. Some may argue that such societies lack a state system because there is no centralized system for their governance. Still, this argument is not relevant when examining political organization. Whether or not a social class exists which lacks a state is irrelevant for the political systems of various states.

There are social groups who may not have interests similar to one another. Therefore, politics is not a zero-sum game where one group gains and another loses. In fact, all groups in a society benefit from political association and interaction. In other words, the loss or gain of political power in any society depends solely on the dynamics of social groups.

Politics, whether theoretical frameworks such as Machiavellian theory or sociological theories such as Weber’s notion of the mass man, remains a legitimate field of study for those interested in social policy.

Politics is the group of political activities which are concerned with making decisions on behalf of groups, individuals or the state in terms of power relationships, or distributing societal status or resources. The branch of social sciences that studies government and politics is called political science. It studies all sorts of governments, political systems and social institutions including the way politics influences the economic development of a country. Politics and public policy are also closely linked. For instance, a politician may be responsible for the creation of a country’s laws and regulation or regulate its political system.

Politics and public policy are not only related but intertwined. They often evolve from closely related practices in different institutions like religion, medicine, sociology and law. All these practices and philosophies have shaped how societies, nations and individuals see, feel and think about politics. The study of politics is thus an indispensable part of the academic curriculum. Students who want to pursue political studies must therefore take up studies that will equip them with general knowledge about politics and public policy.

In recent years, the study of politics has become highly diversified, drawing from a number of disciplines, including anthropology, business, development, economics, English, journalism, political science, sociology and technology. Some of the most prominent areas of research include Comparative Politics, Critical Politics, International Relations, Immigration/Illegal Immigration, International Security, Gender and Reproductive Rights, Immigration/Illegal Immigration, Nations and International Organizations, Political Communication and Political Participation. There are many universities that offer degree courses in politics.

Students can choose from two major areas of study, either of which would be interested in politics and public policy. One focuses on political systems while the other studies different ways in which politics influences public policy. For example, in Comparative Politics, students learn the concepts of political science and compare and contrast these with those of various other fields. Those interested in International Relations study international political systems and how these systems affect different countries as they interact with each other. Those who are into Economics study economic institutions, growth, inflation, unemployment and other economic indicators that affect public policy.

Public policy is related to how politics influence the government’s policies and actions in areas such as health care, education, labor, immigration, environment, technology and society. Studying public policies also involves studying how members of government get elected, how policies are enacted and how they affect citizens. Students who are interested in journalism learn how to conduct research, as well as writing short stories that examine current affairs. Students who are interested in development learn how the government spends resources and what projects are carried out to help improve living standards. They can also choose to specialize in any of the above mentioned areas.

A comparative analysis is one of the best ways for understanding politics, as it compares and contrasts several political systems. A main article on this subject examines the major political systems in the world today. The main article starts with the United States and goes through all the major political systems until it reaches the English polity system. After analyzing all the systems, the main article discusses how each polity has formed its own system for organizing politics.

An introduction to political theory can be divided into two categories: object and self-acting co-operation. The main article briefly discusses the idea of object co-operation, as well as self-acting co-operation. It then goes on to describe how these two forms of co-operation are related and how politics may affect them.

Politics may seem difficult at first, but it is made easier with the help of this handy guide. The world seems chaotic, but it is actually a very systematic process which is constantly being polished. Learning more about politics makes it easier to understand what gets done in politics, how politics affects the people who live in it, and why they do what they do. By reading this book, you will not only have a better understanding of politics, but you will also learn many interesting facts about politics that you might otherwise miss out if you were to study it in the usual way.
