This systematic, user friendly, and refreshingly unusual introduction to comparative politics has not only been updated and refined in the third edition, but also fully revised to reflect the impact of major new developments in world politics. Designed to teach students how to think comparatively and theoretically about the world they live in, the book is organized around a set of critical questions—why are poor countries poor? why is East Asia relatively prosperous? what makes a democracy? how can we explain terrorism and genocide? what leads people to mobilize around a cause?—each the topic of a full chapter. These issue chapters are based on the solid methodological and theoretical foundation laid out in the first part of the book, and the entire text is enhanced with case studies and graphics.

About the Author:

Timothy Lim is associate professor of political science at California State University, Los Angeles, and associate director of the university's Center for Korean American and Korean Studies.

Review:

"Unlike most other introductory texts in comparative politics that focus on country cases, Lim's valuable book gives students the skills to become critical thinkers and to actually DO comparative politics themselves." - Claudio Holzner, University of Utah"
