About this Publication:

The Explanatory Dictionary of Politics (EDP) contains 2 620 key political terms and definitions. The main goal of the EDP is to facilitate a proper understanding of the political realm.

The EDP provides assistance to subject specialists and language practitioners. The disciplines involved, which are loosely referred to as the political sciences, include politics, international politics, international relations, African politics, strategic studies, as well as aspects of political development, political administration and political economy.

Die Verklarende Politieke Woordeboek (VPW) is gebaseer op die bekroonde tweetalige Nuwerwetse Politieke Woordeboek (NPW) van 2011, en bevat 2 620 politieke kernterme en -definisies. Die hoofdoel van die VPW is om behoorlike begrip van die politieke bestel moontlik te maak.

Die VPW verleen hulp aan vakspesialiste en taalpraktisyns. Die dissiplines betrokke en waarna breedweg as die politieke wetenskappe verwys word, sluit in politiek, internasionale politiek, internasionale verhoudinge, Afrikapolitiek, strategiese studies, sowel as aspekte van politieke ontwikkeling, politieke administrasie en politieke ekonomie.
