The classic introduction to political science and comparative politics has been comprehensively updated for this new edition. Retaining the clarity of expression and breadth of coverage that has made it the introduction of choice for generations of students, it provides a lively and up-to-date account of the events and forces shaping politics in today's interconnected world. The new edition includes separate chapters on theoretical approaches and research strategies in political science as well as increased coverage of security, media, culture, law and regulation.

Carefully designed learning features illustrate the text throughout. These include:

• full-page Profiles on individual countries and the European Union, with associated Spotlights linked to each chapter
• on-page glossary definitions for key terms and timelines of key events
• guides to additional learning resources for each chapter

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

"Already the best general introduction to comparative political science on the market, this textbook gets better and better with new sections in this new edition providing additional coverage of how the core theoretical ideas in modern political science explain political behaviour and institutions." —Simon Hix, LSE 

Reviews of previous editions:

"The best introductory textbook in the field, up to date and full of useful examples." -- Dr. Reuven Hazan, The Hebrew University

"Intelligent, comprehensive and insightful, this book is a boon for both students and their teachers. Long established as one of the best introductions to political science and comparative politics it still manages to get even better with each successive edition." -- Professor Peter Mair, University of Leiden
