This text summarizes the field of comparative politics - past achievements, current perspectives, tasks ahead - and illustrates new approaches through actual case studies. Basic concepts such as political development, modernization, corporatism, dependency, revolution, reform and democratization are discussed. In addition, recent developments in comparative methodology, including case studies and statistics, are examined. The book analyzes recent industrial policies in Western countries and Japan; economic changes in China; the forces behind Khomeini's revolution; and the prospects for democratization in Latin America, and for glasnost and perestroika in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union.
