Political Science Books

SORT BY:
Use political science books as educational tools for school courses, independent study, or reading for pleasure. These textbooks and audio books come from highly respected publishers, such as Yale University Press and Cambridge University Press. They range from elementary to graduate reading levels.

Independent Study
Political science books make a valuable addition to any home library. Keep up to speed on the latest theories and leaders that guide the political world, and in turn affect your daily life. Choose from lighter fare, such as memoirs and books for elementary-aged children, or denser academic works.

Textbooks for Political Science Courses
Save money when buying your college textbooks. These books are essential components of any political science course and form the backbone of your studies. Improve your note-taking skills with colorful page markers, which are easy to remove later with no damage to the page. This is especially useful if you plan to sell your books after completing your course.

Audio Books
Are you an audio learner? Search the selection of audio books for some of the most cutting edge political science content, including first-hand accounts from people who were present during major turning points in history. As a bonus, this material is easy to consume during a commute, and since it's read aloud, you can take notes while you listen.

Opinion-Based Works
Choose from a selection of political works featuring viewpoints from the left, right, and everywhere in between. Dig deeper to learn how these authors form and defend their opinions, and how they structure their arguments. In the process, develop your own ideas to prepare you for that next political debate.
