"Politics is the process and method of gaining or maintaining support for public or common action, the conduct of "decision-making for groups. Although it is usually applied to governments, political behavior is also observed in corporate, academic, religious, and other institutions. "Political science is the field devoted to studying political behavior and examining the acquisition and application of "power, or the ability to impose one's will on another. Its practitioners are known as political scientists. Political scientists look at "elections, public opinion, institutional activities (how "legislatures act, the relative importance of various sources of political power), the ideologies behind various politicians and interest groups, how politicians achieve and wield their influence, and so on.

Selected biography

"Phạm Ngọc Thảo (1922–1965), a major provincial leader in "South Vietnam and infiltrator of the "Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), was a "communist agent of the "Viet Minh and later the "Vietnam People's Army. As the overseer of "Ngô Đình Nhu's "Strategic Hamlet Program in the early 1960s, he deliberately forced the program forward at unsustainable speeds, constructing poorly equipped and poorly defended villages, in order to foster rural resentment against the regime of President "Ngo Dinh Diem, Nhu's elder brother. Thao was posthumously promoted by the ARVN to the rank of one-star general and awarded the title of Heroic war dead ("Vietnamese: Liệt sĩ). After the "Fall of Saigon and the end of the "Vietnam War, the communist government awarded him the same title and paid war pensions to his family, claiming him as one of their own.
