Review:

“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

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.
