Alfred de Grazia:



Bibliographic materials have been arranged according to chapter. However, because of considerations of space, only a few books can be mentioned. For the same reason, works which may be applicable to several chapters have been cited only once. The principles used in selectir<g the works cited are: importance, usefulness, readability, and availability in the library or book store. Wherever possible, paperbound books have been cited.

In addition to the bibliographic materials cited under the chapter headings the student should know that several general works contain expanded comments on many of the words and ideas of the present book. These are:

The Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences; Encyclopaedia Britannica; and The Statesman's Yearbook. On current affairs, The New York Times, the Christian Science Monitor, and U.S. News and World Report are good sources. The annual Index to The New York Times enables the reader to find readily reports on any current subject in which he is interested. In searching for articles on a subject, he can go to the International Index to Periodical Literature. On all professional subjects of political science, one may look into Laverne Burchfield's Guide to Materials in Political Science (1935). Many titles appearing after the publication of Miss Burchfield's book have been listed in The American Political Science Review and The American Behavioral Scientist (after 1958) in their special sections on bibliography. The New Dictionary of American Politics (Barnes & Noble), by Edward C. Smith and Arnold J. Zureher, and The Vocabulary of Politics, by Thomas D. Weldon (Penguin) will aid the student in understanding the terminology of political science.
