Review quote

"The part openers are one of the strongest aspects of the book. They provide a rich comparative element to the book in terms of conceptualization and theoretical material, which sets this text apart from books that are strictly country comparisons. The openers are well written and comprehensive, yet very accessible for the introductory-level reader. . . . [O]ne of the greatest assets of this book is that it is not a simple collection of country case studies. Throughout the book, the author draws comparisons between countries using a variety of methods, among these the various text boxes. In addition, the 'comparative exercises' overtly draw the attention of the student back to the fact that the objective of comparative politics is not simply to learn about a slew of countries, but to be able to make conceptual, structural, and institutional comparisons between them for the purpose of broader generalizations and theory-making."
