From the Publisher:

An accessible, highly readable text on Comparative Politics that takes a country-by-country approach.

From the Back Cover:

This book introduces Comparative Politics through a country-by-country analysis and recent case studies. By demonstrating that political life is universal, it proves that no country is really "alien." The book provides the relevant historical background for current political events. It employs a critical approach demonstrating that every country has problems and breakdowns in a system are always political. This sixth edition has been revised to include a new chapter on Iran exploring the politics of the Islamic revolution. In addition, sections on Japan, Russia, France, China, and Britain have all been updated to reflect the latest political events in those countries as well as the implications of those events. An essential resource book for any reader who needs to understand current political events and their meaning.
