Compares countries by evaluating them against the standards of the good society

 

Combining thematic and country approaches to show students what comparative politics is really about, The Good Society, The: An Introduction to Comparative Politics, 3/e organizes itself around a key question–why are some countries better than others at improving their citizens’ lives? This brief survey examines the field of comparative politics, defines core concepts, and offers case studies of individual countries that apply those concepts.

Review:

“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
