Introducing Comparative Politics

Introducing Comparative Politics: Concepts and Cases in Context Ed 5

Organized thematically around important questions in comparative politics―who rules? what explains political behavior? where and why?―Introducing Comparative Politics, Fifth Edition, integrates a set of extended case studies of 11 countries that vividly illustrate issues in cross-national context. Serving as touchstones, the cases are placed within the chapters where they make the most sense ―not separated from the theory or in a separate volume―helping students make connections between the two earlier in the semester. The book’s hybrid organization gives students a more holistic view of comparative politics.
