'This latest edition lives up to the high expectations created by its predecessors and remains top of the list for comprehensiveness and accessibility. The discussion of theories, concepts, and typologies is well supported by cases and examples of recent political developments.' - Rudy Andweg, Leiden University, the Netherlands. Once again (and now with John McCormick on board) this classic introductory comparative politics text manages to stay relevant, accessible and contemporary. It remains the key text for students new to comparative politics, mixing theoretical clarity with expert country case studies throughout. - Mark Bennister, Canterbury Christchurch University, UK This is one of, if not the, most comprehensive introductory comparative textbook(s) currently on the market, and this new edition retains all of the strongest features of previous editions. - James Allan, Wittenberg University, USA
