Summary

Written by a distinguished group of comparativists, this innovative and accessible introductory text surveys 12 key countries organized by their level of political development: established democracies, transitional democracies, and non-democracies. The country studies illuminate four comparative themes in a global context: 1. The world of states?the interaction of states within the international order. 2. Governing the economy?the role of the state in economic management. 3. The democratic idea?the pressure for more democracy and the challenges of democratization. 4. The politics of collective identities?the political impact of diverse attachments and sources of group identity. Make It Yours!
