Without a new focus on action, political science will remain sterile; and without a more human politics, citizens will remain misinformed, apathetic, helpless. Political Action is controversial because it challenges the profession of political science. It suggests a paradigm shift which is important for allied social science disciplines as well. For political strategists it provides the methodological tool of political action propositions, which allow a careful calculation of the effects of alternative strategies.
