Comparative Government and Politics An Introduction Synopsis

John McCormick joins Rod Hague and Martin Harrop as co-author for the 10th edition of this renowned and bestselling textbook. Taking a thematic approach to Comparative Politics, it introduces students to the key concepts, structures and arguments that will enable them to successfully compare political systems across the globe. Taking full account of the different institutions of government and political cultures that exist around the world, the authors offer detailed analysis of a range of democracies and authoritarian regimes. In addition, an array of carefully-designed pedagogical features equip students with the tools and critical mind-set to explore debates and spark discussion. With its impressively comprehensive coverage, the book can be used as the sole text for teaching undergraduate courses worldwide on Comparative Politics, Comparative Government, Introduction to Politics and Introduction to Political Science.
