dc.description.abstractIn contrast to its quantitative advances, political science has made only modest contributions to addressing salient contemporary issues. Political studies have largely been reduced to a functionalist science of `managing' parliamentary-party government. The article argues in favour of the discipline redefining itself as a science of democracy, the need for partisan visions in attaining a `good society', the need to help citizens grapple with policy alternatives, and that political scientists should take sides when democratic government conflicts with business interests.
