Introduction

Politics can be a realm of surprises and apparent contradictions. In late 2009, at the same time that U.S. citizens were becoming more isolationist than at any time recorded by modern public opinion researchers, U.S. President Barack Obama was receiving international accolades as a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

The president’s recognition abroad could not shield him from the opposition at home, however, and, by the early months of 2010, the country’s newest self-identified grassroots political movement—the Tea Party—was launching protests against the president who had himself been a grassroots community organizer.

Yet, while President Obama was sometimes charged with being pro-“big government”—or even with being a “socialist”—for his support of government assistance programs, a 2010 report in The Economist magazine revealed that it had been during the Bush administration that the size of the U.S.(Analyzing Politics PDF by Ellen Grigs)

the federal government had increased beyond anything seen since the administration of Lyndon Johnson; in fact, The Economist noted, 7,000 pages of new government regulations were added under Bush’s leadership. Moreover, at the same time, that information technology was broadening access to news,

public opinion surveys were documenting significant gaps in information among members of the U.S. public; indeed, before leaving office, the former president Bush sought to correct the mistaken assumption—at one point believed by almost 70 percent of the U.S. public—that Saddam Hussein had been responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Political science seeks to analyze such complexities.(Analyzing Politics PDF by Ellen Grigs)

As you study political science you may find that your conception of politics has been influenced by many factors. For example, consider how differently you might view your life, your goals, and your attitudes about politics if you could be transported across the boundaries of identity, gender, nationality, age, and/or economic status. Imagine, for instance, that you reside in Cairo’s City of the Dead, a sprawling, crowded cemetery in which tombs share space with satellite TV dishes.(Analyzing Politics PDF by Ellen Grigs)

The City of the Dead has become home to many of Cairo’s poor and homeless as Cairo’s population growth has outpaced its infrastructure. If recent predictions by the United Nations prove to be correct, your life—one lived in congested urban quarters—will become the life of more and more men and women as the year 2030 approaches. Indeed,

the United Nations cautions that the world is becoming “a planet of slums.” Now, imagine yourself a member of the Nukak-Maku, a nomadic, self-contained people living far away from cities and deep in the forests of Colombia. (Analyzing Politics PDF by Ellen Grigs)

If you happened to be one of the approximately 80 members of your people who recently—for reasons unclear to outsiders—left the Amazonian jungle and entered San Jose del Guaviare, you encountered an unfamiliar world. You brought with you no word for money, you have no understanding of airplanes (you have asked if they move on hidden paths in the sky), and you have never heard of Colombia, the country in whose borders you and your people have existed for hundreds of years.

Try to imagine sharing the experiences of Tsutomu Yamaguchi. Mr. Yamaguchi was working in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the day the atomic bomb was dropped on the city. The atomic bombing of Hiroshima killed 140,000 people, but somehow he survived. Feeling profoundly fortunate to be alive still, he left Hiroshima and headed for his home, Nagasaki.

On August 9, an atomic bomb was dropped on Nagaski and Mr. Yamaguchi, again, survived. One of perhaps more than 100 people to have survived two atomic bombs, Mr. Yamaguchi went on to become a teacher and to raise a family. It was only in his old age that he started speaking publicly about his life as a hibakusha (atomic bombing victim) and his views on nuclear war.

Before his death in 2010, Mr. Yamaguchi stated that, in his opinion, the only people who should ever have the power to authorize the use of nuclear weapons were mothers with young children. Try imagining your life as Dena al-Atassi. You were the only Muslim in your high school in Bunnell, Florida. A daughter of a Syrian father and a U.S. mother, you received death threats for simply wearing a headscarf (hijab).
