9780230368156: Comparative Government and Politics: An Introduction

The classic introduction to political science has been thoroughly updated for this new edition. Retaining its characteristic clarity of expression and breadth of coverage, it provides a lively account of the events and forces shaping politics in today's interconnected world. Fully revised throughout, this edition includes additional material on elections and voters, increased coverage of rising powers such as India and China, and a broader range of international examples. The text is supported by a variety of carefully designed features throughout: - Full-page Profiles on individual countries and the European Union give overviews of the different types of political systems around the world. Associated Spotlight articles examine important features of those systems - from voting in Venezuela to democracy in India. - End-of-chapter discussion questions and further reading help to consolidate knowledge. - New Studying boxes introduce major themes addressed by political scientists and highlight key issues involved in studying and researching each topic.

Review:

"A compelling introduction to the major concepts, controversies, approaches and techniques needed to understand an increasingly globalized and interconnected world. Clearly written, accessible, and well supported by careful use of the evidence, this first-rate textbook provides a firm foundation for informed debate on comparative politics." - Pippa Norris, Harvard University, USA "A truly outstanding introduction: it is comprehensive, superbly structured and remarkably accessible. It successfully combines substantive themes with core concepts, theoretical approaches and research strategies. This latest edition not only updates the previous one, but improves on it." - Rudy Andeweg, Leiden University, The Netherlands "Extraordinary breadth and depth of coverage make this an indispensable resource for teachers and students of political science. With this latest edition, the book remains top of the list as the best introduction to comparative politics." - David Farrell, University College Dublin, Ireland.
