Organized thematically around important questions in comparative politics—who rules? what explains political behavior? where and why?—Introducing Comparative Politics integrates a set of extended case studies of 11 countries that vividly illustrate issues in cross-national context. The cases are placed within the chapters where they make the most sense —not separated from the theory or in a separate volume—helping students make connections between theory and practice earlier in the semester and giving them a more holistic view of comparative politics.
