Editorial Reviews

Review

I have never seen such a positive reaction to a textbook from students, honestly. We have had a problem finding a suitable book for this course. The end of course critiques had been blistering on the subject of the text. Not this year! -- David Sacko The strength of the Drogus and Orvis text is the integration of themes and case studies. This approach enhances the analytical qualities of instruction as the case studies are embedded in thematic coverage and provide a hands-on illustration of concepts and principles. -- Boyka Stefanova The "Where and Why" feature is a very effective way of elaborating on a conceptual methodology that is a cornerstone of comparative analysis without belaboring students with a complex presentation of the comparative method. -- Dwayne Woods

Great book, comes with mini case studies that help understand the concepts of each chapter perfectly. Love the side definitions also very elaborate. Unsure if the printing company meant to but pages 94-98 are missing. :-(

Book came on time, with little to no writing or highlighting inside and on the margins, which is pretty good considering it's used.

There was a page missing (manufactures problem). However the rest was pretty good. The pages and cover didn't show any wear.
