Designed to supplement core Comparative Politics textbooks, COMPARATIVE POLITICS: USING MICROCASE EXPLORIT provides students with award-winning software to analyze and critically evaluate real data. This workbook includes a Windows version of MicroCase ExplorIt, a user-friendly program that makes it easy for students to manipulate and learn from real data without getting bogged down in complicated statistical software. Over two dozen research-quality data files are included in this package, along with 14 exercise worksheets (1 per chapter) that let students see the real impact of the concepts they study. This unique workbook/software package allows students to "do" comparative politics, not just read about it.
