Politics and Periphery. An Introduction

This textbook offers an introduction to political sciences with a focus on the periphery. The aim is to open for students of social science studies horizons apart from the usual introductory literature that focuses only on the European-Atlantic area, and furthermore to give a solid founding for the understanding of the - very divers - political phenomena in the nations of the south.

The first part of the book (Foundation) presents and discusses the theoretical aspects of a politico-scientific occupation with the nations of the »global south«. The second part (Peripheral Statehood) analyses the different aspects of statehood and politics in a national frame. The third part (Internationalisation) engages in statehood and transnational politics, and the fourth and last part discusses specific fields of politics exemplarily.
