COMPARATIVE POLITICS IN TRANSITION helps students understand all the elements that make up government, how governments work, how different countries address similar problems, how people relate to politics, and how comparisons can help students arrive at rules about politics and better understand their place in the world. The text divides the world into arenas designed to give a more realistic and accurate view of the world in the new millennium. The author explores the growing influence of increasing wealth and stability on countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America, and examines the political influence of Islam.
