About this book

Introduction

Already established as the leading text in the field, the third edition of Comparative Government and Politics is comprehensively revised and substantially rewritten to cover the collapse of communism, the extension of democracy in the Second and Third Worlds, and the growing internationalisation of political and economic life. The book has been completely redesigned and includes an extended range of international examples and exhibits as well as many editorial and presentational innovations to make it even more lively and accessible for students.
