Editorial Reviews

Review

"The regional approach works well because it allows me to draw in cross-country historical and cultural material. Students also get a better appreciation of the linkages between "international" and "domestic" politics within this framework. Moreover, the regional coverage allows me to spend a majority of the time on the key aspects I want students to get out of this class… ."

"Although the author's 'regional approach' to the study of comparative politics is not the prevailing approach used in this country for introducing students to the sub-field, it has much to commend it and the author does a very good job of executing the task in this text, for those prospective instructors who might wish to employ such an approach."

"… the text provides case studies of the more important countries in each region to illustrate the variations that occur. The index is superb and is one of the best I have seen over the years …. The glossary is also well done and the students have found it very useful …. The writing style is, in my opinion, excellent and at an appropriate level for students I teach." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought it because it's required. Nevertheless, it's nicely laid out. Functions nicely and I can think of no complaints.

Very good book for the study of geopolitics, breaks things down into layman's terms and easy to follow from the first read.
