Political Science and Politics

Michael Ignatieff is a political science professor and a Canadian politician.

This editorial in the New York times is a meditation on the differences between theory and practice, on how to make political decision, and all-around thought-provoking. I highly recommend it.

I would also add how unusual it is for an academic to cross the divide to become an elected official.
