For freshman/sophomore-level courses in Comparative Politics, World Politics, as well as Introduction to Politics with a comparative focus.An exceptionally clear, jargon-free writing style and an emphasis on political institutions and behavior-rather than on abstract conceptual frameworks-make this text consistently more accessible to introductory students than most other texts on comparative politics. It features both a cross-national approach-permitting students to develop a truly comparative understanding of the types of institutions (e.g., constitutions, executives, legislatures, political parties, etc.)-as well as a country-by-country approach that examines those institutions within the contexts of eight different countries-enabling students to see how all the "pieces" fit together.
