Reviews

"This introductory text is quite accessible to the student, and provides not only a thorough comparative treatment of a range of countries, but also connects these countries and their policies to global issues and challenges."
"This text is exceptionally well-written. It introduces students to new concepts and ideas in a way that both challenges and encourages student readers. It is readable, deeply engaging, and addresses the same themes and ideas that I find imperative to a good course in comparative politics. Very well done."
