Government and Politics Overview
Government and Politics is the study of how society has organized itself, throughout history, through its law and civil institutions. It concerns both the current functioning of the state and how its institutions and regulative bodies developed and came into being. Moreover, it encompasses how power and authority are distributed and legitimized, how legal institutions are enforced, and how different states and international entities interact on the world political stage.
