Description:

This innovative hybrid book is fully ideal for lecturers who want to give their students a real sense of the questions that drive research in the field. Organized thematically around important concepts in comparative politics-Who rules? What explains political behaviour? Where and why?-the book integrates a set of extended case studies in eleven "core" countries. Serving as consistent geographic touchstones, the cases are set in chapters where they make the most sense substantively-not separated from theory or in a separate volume-and vividly illustrate issues in cross-national context. Features include: Core country case studies: Brazil, China, Germany, Japan, India, Iran, Nigeria, Russia, the UK, the U.S., and, new to this edition, Mexico Methods in Context boxes that model how comparativists do their research and analysis In Context fact boxes that put eye-opening data into thematic context Where and Why? boxes that explore why certain political outcomes occur in some countries but not in others Country and Concept tables that display key indicators for core countries. The book is accompanied by a companion website featuring for lecturers: Test banks, PowerPoint lecture slides, an Instructor's Manual containing chapter overviews, talking points for lectures, and one page "backgrounders" on each of the 11 core case studies, and Sample syllabi. For students: chapter summaries, quiz qustions, and flashcards.
