This text is appropriate for comparative politics, world politics, and global politics courses taught at the university level. The Canadian edition of Comparative Politics: An Institutional and Cross-National Approach provides students and instructors with a balance of the theoretical, institutional and polity specific approaches. Emphasis is placed on political institutions because of their ease of comparison, their facility of identification and classification, and the extent to which they lend themselves to analysis. Comparative Politics gives students both the tools and the perspective to undertake a meaningful cross-national introduction to the political world in which they must operate.
