This unique book goes beyond examining individual aspects of political behavior. In Political Behavior, the authors pose a model of how citizens behave in the political arena and suggest that particular expressions provide clues about where citizens locate their behaviors within the contexts defined by this model. The focus is on how ethical, empirical, and prudential issues affect political behavior. The author's approach is contextual, making the discussion energetic and enlightening. Political Behavior serves as a multidisciplinary approach to the study of political behavior. It will be a valuable text for courses and seminars such as political behavior, political theory, logic, political philosophy, political participation, government, business, political economy, and political sociology.
