Comparative Politics: Structures and Choices
Taking a unique hybrid approach to comparative government, the exciting new COMPARATIVE POLITICS: STRUCTURE AND CHOICE begins each chapter by introducing relevant concepts and then ties those concepts together by applying them to the governments of ten countries: Mexico, China, Russia, the UK, Nigeria, Iran, India, Germany, France, and Brazil. This model allows instructors to easily compare and contrast the structures and choices of like governments--and helps students put chapter concepts into the context of today's political climate. The text emphasizes real-world application throughout. Comparative exercises model what a comparativist actually does, while features such as the brief In theory/In Practice boxes give students hands-on experience at putting theory into action.
