Written by a distinguished group of comparativists, this innovative and accessible introductory text surveys 12 key countries organized by their level of political development: established democracies, transitional democracies, and non-democracies. The country studies illuminate four comparative themes in a global context: 1. The world of states--the interaction of states within the international order. 2. Governing the economy--the role of the state in economic management. 3. The democratic idea--the pressure for more democracy and the challenges of democratization. 4. The politics of collective identities--the political impact of diverse attachments and sources of group identity. Make It Yours!
