Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Systematically examining politics from around the world, Countries and Concepts presents ten accessible and in-depth studies of Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, India, Mexico, Nigeria, and Iran.

 

This text looks at 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.

This package contains the following components:

Synopsis:

“Students actually read this text. It conveys the major methods of analysis and concepts of political science without jargon. It not only engages students who have little prior interest or knowledge in comparative politics, but it also inspires them to learn more and think critically.”—Linda Dolive, Northern Kentucky University
