Críticas:

'Foundations of Comparative Politics is both intelligent and accessible. This book has the virtue of compelling students to think through basic choices confronting mature Western democracies in the 21st century. The authors make big ideas accessible by introducing the student to diverse briefings, controversies, and fact files that whet the appetite for active debate. In short, the book is a gem which will make teaching more fun for teachers and more meaningful for students.' Liesbet Hooghe, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

'The authors succeed brilliantly in covering the vast and complex field of comparative politics in a highly efficient and to-the-point manner - and with maximum accessibility for students who are new to the field. This is an ideal textbook for the 21st century, in which democracy may remain the dominant paradigm but in which the world's democracies face many grave challenges to their well-being and even survival, such as ethnic and religious conflict and the forces of globalization.' Arend Lijphart, University of California, San Diego

'This text would be useful for instructors who are teaching an introductory class on developed democracy comparative politics, or who are willing to supplement the text with additional material for less institutionalized democracies and non democracies.' Journal of Political Science Education

'I think this book is ideal for teaching and represents a better alternative than many textbooks in comparative politics. I strongly recommend its usage, either for second or even first-year students.' Political Studies Review

Reseña del editor:

This authoritative new introductory text covers the key concepts, theories and issues involved in the study of comparative politics. Focusing on democratic government, it covers all important topics in the field from constitutional design and institutions; through mass and elite politics, groups, parties, the media and governments; to policy making and implementation. The final chapter considers the future of the state and democracy in a globalising world. The authors draw on experiences and examples from around the world, and the book includes extensive supporting apparatus for students and teachers, including briefings, fact files, key terms, guides to further reading, and related websites. Each chapter ends with a section dealing with the major theoretical approaches to the subject. The aim is to give students a clear and comprehensive account of democratic politics and government at the start of the twenty first century.
