30-second Politics will help dispel this fog of mistrust and paranoia. It challenges political theorists of all colours to come up with no-frill, no-spin, tell-it-like-it-is explanations of the 50 most important political -isms, -archies, and -ocracies that have pertained since the time of Periclean Athens. At no public expense, the book explains each political theory in nothing more than two pages, 300 words, and some propaganda-style imagery, for we all know that a picture opportunity is worth a thousand words of dull interview.
Editor Stevan L. Taylor is Professor of Politcal Science at Troy University, Alabama. He specializes in Latin American politics and is the author of Voting Amid Violence Electoral Democracy in Columbia (2009) and is currently working on a project comparing the United States to 29 other democracies.
