Greg Mahler is Professor of Politics and Academic Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Earlham College.Review:
“Alone among textbooks on comparative politics, Greg Mahler’s Principles of Comparative Politics combines a sweeping and up-to-date overview of the field with incisive and detailed studies of eight themes and eight countries. It’s an ideal introductory text, giving students both theoretical context and country-specific understanding.” —Ronald Rogowski, University of California-Los Angeles
“Clearly written and intelligently organized, Mahler offers students a comprehensive and well-informed overview of the structures, institutions, and actors that organize political life in countries around the world. This is a perfect text for introductory courses in comparative politics!” —Mark Tessler, University of Michigan
“This is the quintessential introduction to comparative politics. It provides a sophisticated foundation of institutional analysis, respects historical influences, and above all, carefully focuses on the key mechanisms that drive politics in the contemporary world.” — Gerhard Peters, Citrus College
