“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 UniversityFrom the Back Cover:
