9780205854929: Understanding the Political World: A Comparative Introduction to Political Science (11th Edition)

Updated in its 11th edition, Understanding the Political World offers a comparative perspective on how politics works at the global, national, group, and individual level. Focusing on how fundamental concepts in political science relate to real political events, this bestselling text surveys political behavior, systems, and processes throughout the world and asks students to evaluate and apply this knowledge. Through an engaging writing style, numerous examples, and the instructive use of visuals, Understanding the Political World encourages readers to think like political scientists and to critically examine new and enduring political realities and challenges.

Review:

“Danziger has written the perfect book for an introduction to political science. Presenting a full range of domestic and international issues plus detailed scenarios that make students think critically, he balances the academic approach to political science with the practical need to be fluent in real world politics.”–Krista Wiegand, Georgia Southern University
