Outline of Political Science
Overview of and topical guide to political science
The following outline is provided as an overview of and topical guide to politics and political science:
Politics – the exercise of power; process by which groups of people make collective decisions. Politics is the art or science of running governmental or state affairs (including behavior within civil governments), institutions, fields, and special interest groups such as the corporate, academic, and religious segments of society.
Federalism - a political concept in which a group of members are bound together by covenant (Latin: foedus, covenant) with a governing representative head. The term "federalism" is also used to describe a system of the government in which sovereignty is constitutionally divided between a central governing authority and constituent political units (like states or provinces). Federalism is a system based upon democratic rules and institutions in which the power to govern is shared between national and provincial/state governments, creating what is often called a federation.
^Mabbett 1964 "References to the work in other Sanskrit literature attribute it variously to Viugupta, Cakya and Kau?ilya. The same individual is meant in each case. The Pa?catantra explicitly identifies Chanakya with Viugupta."
