Taking a unique approach, the exciting new COMPARATIVE POLITICS: STRUCTURE AND CHOICE begins each chapter with an introduction of relevant concepts and then ties those concepts together by applying them to the governments of ten countries. This model enables readers to easily compare and contrast the structures and choices of like governments--and put concepts in the context of today's political climate.
