Balancing theory and application, this comprehensive text uses a unique theme to engage students in thinking and discussing comparative politics--the theme of domestic responses to global challenges. COMPARATIVE POLITICS introduces the key concepts and examines the growing interdependence among strong and weak states through the discussion of 12 countries, including the U.S. and the European community. The countries discussed are categorized by economic development, helping students develop their skills of comparison, synthesis and interpretation amongst countries of similar economic status. Students will gain an understanding of some of the most important general trends, an exposure to politics in a number of countries, and a desire to dig more deeply into this fascinating and exciting field of comparative politics.

Charles "Chip" Hauss wears two professional hats. He is the author of books on conflict resolution, comparative politics, and international relations. In 2013, he became editor of a series of books on Peace and Security in the Twenty-First Century and will write its first volume, tentatively entitled Security 2.0. He is also Government Liaison at the Alliance for Peacebuilding. He received his BA from Oberlin College and his MA and PhD from The University of Michigan. Before joining the Alliance, he spent 17 years each teaching at Colby College, Reading University (UK), and George Mason University. Hauss has taught a variety of courses in comparative politics, international relations, and peace studies. As an academic and as an activist, his work has been held together by an interest in and commitment to large scale, nonviolent political and social change.

"The text is versatile in that it allows the professor to teach either by emphasizing the study of specific nations or by emphasizing the presence of different themes across several nations. The text offers coverage of specific nations, thus allowing the country-specific approach. But the themes followed within each chapter are similar across nations so that a thematic approach is also possible using this text."
"The most important strength of this text is its extensive and comprehensive use of complementary materials, ranging from the Boxed Material and photographs, to the Web sites, InfoTrac, transparency masters, and video tape cases (which I found excellent!)."
