Description: Beginning with an introduction to the field of comparative politics, this clear and complete text moves on to explore new, innovative directions in the field. Leading scholar Howard J. Wiarda explores its main approaches, including political development, political culture, dependency theory, corporatism, indigenous theories of change, state-society relations, rational choice, and the new institutionalism. The book then turns its attention to the hot issues in the field. The book concludes with a stimulating discussion of whether the great systems debates of the past (socialism vs. capitalism, democracy vs. authoritarianism) are now over, and points to some of the next important study and research frontiers. Students, professors, and general readers will all find Comparative Politics current, provocative, and well writtena truly balanced overview.
