Countries and Concepts: Politics, Geography, Culture

Tenth Edition

Michael Roskin

Systematically examining politics from around the world, Countries and Concepts presents accessible, in-depth studies of ten nations: Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, India, Mexico, Nigeria, and Iran. This text highlights similarities and differences in five key areas of each country to facilitate comparative analysis, defining important concepts and integrating examples from current events throughout. Highly readable and thought-provoking, Countries and Concepts introduces students to the politics and governments of the world and bolsters their civic education by considering the historical, political, economic, geographical, and moral aspects of democracy.

New to This Edition

  • Updated coverage reflects the latest elections and events in each country, the European Union’s 2007 Reform Treaty, and more.
