Full description for Comparative Government and Politics
The classic introduction to political science has been thoroughly updated for this new edition. Retaining its characteristic clarity of expression and breadth of coverage, it provides a lively account of the events and forces shaping politics in today's interconnected world. Fully revised throughout, this edition includes additional material on elections and voters, increased coverage of rising powers such as India and China, and a broader range of international examples. The text is supported by a variety of carefully designed features throughout: - Full-page Profiles on individual countries and the European Union give overviews of the different types of political systems around the world. Associated Spotlight articles examine important features of those systems - from voting in Venezuela to democracy in India. - End-of-chapter discussion questions and further reading help to consolidate knowledge. - New Studying boxes introduce major themes addressed by political scientists and highlight key issues involved in studying and researching each topic.
