This introductory text examines the contrasting purpose of political institutions as a means to acquire power versus their use as a means to exercise public choice. This edition includes an expanded treatment of state and society, an added distinction between economic and non-economic interest groups, and three new country examples: ethic conflict in Rwanda - a failure of the new world order; interest groups in Japan - attenuated neo corporatism; and fragile democratization of Peru.
