If you want to know the methodological approaches and divisions in political science, and to a greater sense social science, this was an adequately good book. Read it for my graduate course on Issues in Political Science.

This book offers a really great overview of the main theories and approaches of political science, and includes an analysis of methods and research design. It is clearly written and thorough.
