Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Combining thematic and country approaches to show students what comparative politics is really about, The Good Society organizes itself around a key question–why are some countries better than others at improving their citizens’ lives?

 

This brief survey offers a focused look at political institutions and uses in-depth country studies to compare how different institutional arrangements yield different political results. By concentrating on how politics affects citizens’ lives, The Good Society offers a uniquely relevant introduction to comparative politics that goes to the heart of the field and helps students develop a critical point-of-view.

Synopsis:

“Teachers of comparative politics will be grateful for this book. Draper and Ramsay have given unity to a wide range of diverse topics in the field by asking how political institutions affect citizen’s quality of life. Not only will students be motivated by this theme, but they will learn even more than they realize about diverse concepts, issues, and countries.”–Andrew J. Nathan, Columbia University
