The freshest, most contemporary introduction to comparative politics.
Essentials of Comparative Politics introduces students to the concepts that political scientists use to study and compare political systems and the particulars of specific political systems. The Fourth Edition has been revised and updated to include the most current and relevant examples and scholarship. The text is available with a corresponding casebook of 13 country studies and a corresponding reader; the three components can be used individually or in any combination.
