Summary

This systematic, user friendly, and refreshingly unusual introduction to comparative politics is designed to teach students how to think comparatively and theoretically about the world they live in. The second edition retains the core features of the first, coherently integrating comparative method, theory, and issues, but provides updated material and additional cases throughout. The text now also includes study questions for each chapter. The book is organized around a set of critical questions¿why are poor countries poor? why is East Asia relatively rich? what makes a democracy? what makes a terrorist? what makes a social movement?¿each the topic of a full chapter. These issue chapters are based on the solid methodological and theoretical foundation laid out in the first part of the book. Graphics and definition boxes enhance the text. Doing Comparative Politics will stimulate your students to critically engage with both the content and the methods of the field.
