Prof. Dr. Kudret Bülbül's work brings a breath of fresh air to the political science literature in terms of its scope, method, language and sources.
In his work, the author offers the reader the opportunity to be nourished by a wider universe than merely looking for the origins of Western political science.
The method that the author follows, prioritizing the concrete and the practical, leaving the abstract and the theoretical to latter makes the subject matters more comprehensible.
Bülbül has also taken up new, different and current debates along with the fundamental themes of political science such as the mechanism of politics, political institutions, concepts and ideologies.
Accordingly, the concept of justice, which is not included in most of the Western political science books in the context of political ideals; as well as the discussions on tradition, modernity and postmodernity within various disciplines of social sciences are covered here in this book.
