POLITICAL SCIENCE

Use economic-oriented subjects in this section for works discussing economic policy.  For works discussing economics from a theoretical or historical viewpoint, use economic-oriented subjects in the BUSINESS & ECONOMICS section.

Multiple subjects in this and other sections may be used to describe a work fully: for example, a book about the 2012 U.S. presidential election could be assigned "POLITICAL SCIENCE / Political Process / Campaigns & Elections" and "HISTORY / United States / 21st Century".

Use "POLITICAL SCIENCE / Public Policy / Social Services & Welfare" for works dealing with government administration of social programs and use "SOCIAL SCIENCE / Social Work" for works of an instructional, theoretical, or historical nature.
