Comparative Politics

Front Cover
Pearson Education, 2013 - Political Science - 398 pages

Debuting in its first edition and driven by a question-based approach, Comparative Politics shows readers how to do real comparative analysis while introducing them to political institutions, identities, and interests. This thematic survey uniquely balances the how–analytical knowledge–and the what–descriptive knowledge–to help readers make their own political arguments and to thus be more critically informed and engaged political participants.
