About the author

Hercules Bantas

<p>Dr Hercules Bantas&nbsp;has been teaching and reading political science for the better part of a decade.&nbsp;It is his opinion that&nbsp;he is too often immersed in some weighty tome or other,&nbsp;the&nbsp;authors of which&nbsp;<em>always</em>&nbsp;use one thousand words where one hundred words would suffice.&nbsp;It was while juggling no less than three weighty tomes by the same author and&nbsp;trying to understand what the fellow&nbsp;was trying&nbsp;to say&nbsp;that the idea&nbsp;of The Reluctant Geek Guides was born.&nbsp;He is well aware that publishing clearly written and unambiguous guides&nbsp;to important ideas in the human sciences is&nbsp;frowned upon in some circles,&nbsp;but he&#39;s going to do it anyway.<br /> <br /> For those who want to know these things, Dr Bantas has a PhD in Political Science and a Masters of Professional Accounting, both from Deakin University in Victoria, Australia. He can be contacted by email at hercbantas[at]tpg.com.au.<br /> &nbsp;</p>
