Reviews of current edition:
'Already the best general introduction to comparative political science on the market, this textbook gets better and better with new sections in this new edition providing additional coverage of how the core theoretical ideas in modern political science explain political behaviour and institutions' – Simon Hix, LSE
'A compelling introduction to the major concepts, controversies, approaches and techniques needed to understand an increasingly globalized and interconnected world. Clearly written, accessible, and well supported by careful use of the evidence, this first-rate textbook provides a firm foundation for informed debate on comparative politics' - Pippa Norris, Harvard University
Reviews of previous editions:
'An excellent introductory text which thoughtfully and effectively combines political analysis with substantive comparison.' - B. Guy Peters, University of Pittsburgh
'The best introductory textbook in the field, up to date and full of useful examples.' - Dr Reuven Hazan, The Hebrew University
'Intelligent, comprehensive and insightful, this book is a boon for both students and their teachers. Long established as one of the best introductions to political science and comparative politics it still manages to get even better with each successive edition.' - Professor Peter Mair, University of Leiden
The classic introduction to political science has been comprehensively updated for this new edition.
