    This chapter points to the way in which the idea of complexity has had a substantial impact in fields such as public policy and organisational theory, whilst noting that it has rarely been applied to the politics of conflict and its relationship with democracy. It suggests that such an approach is integral to developing a critical theory of democratic politics. • Computer scientists (e.g., algorithms designers) who do not work in complexity theory per se. They may use the book for self-study or even to teach a graduate course or seminar. • All those —professors or students— who do research in complexity theory or plan to do so. They may already know Part I and use the book for Parts II and III.

      There are quite a number of good texts on Complexity Theory. For beginners, I would recommend Computational Complexity by Christos H. Papadimitriou. It provides a comprehensive view of the field including Turing machines, Computability, Intractabi. Complexity in World Politics shows how conventional theories oversimplify reality and illustrates how concepts drawn from complexity science can be adapted to increase our understanding of world politics and improve policy. In language free of jargon, the book’s distinguished contributors explain and illustrate a complexity paradigm of world.
