For courses in Introduction to Comparative Politics
Sets the standard for introducing the field of comparative politics
This text begins by laying out a proven analytical framework that is accessible for students new to the
field. The framework is then consistently implemented in twelve authoritative country cases, not only to introduce students to what politics and governments are like around the world but to also understand
the importance of their similarities and differences. Written by leading comparativists and area study
specialists, Comparative Politics Today helps to sort through the world’s complexity and to recognize
patterns that lead to genuine political insight.
