This is a thoroughly revised and updated tenth edition of the classic text in the field of comparative politics. Now co-authored by John McCormick, this comprehensive and lively text continues to introduce students to the key concepts, approaches and arguments that will enable them to successfully compare the fundamentals, structures and processes of political systems across the globe. Taking full account of the institutions of government and the different political cultures that both influence and are impacted by political developments, the authors offer detailed analysis of democracies and authoritarian regimes. This edition includes a much wider range of international case studies, particularly expanded to include more from Latin America and Africa and to reflect the emerging powers on the world stage. The book is also newly supported by a variety of carefully designed supporting features: * Spotlights on individual countries offer profiles of the different types of political systems around the world * Chapter Previews, Overviews, Key Arguments, Discussion Questions and Further Reading help consolidate knowledge * New Focus boxes give more insight into important issues discussed in the text * Key Concepts are defined throughout the text in a concise and easily digestible style. This renowned text is the essential, and accessible, introduction to the study of comparative politics for students of political science everywhere.

'This latest edition lives up to the high expectations created by its predecessors and remains top of the list for comprehensiveness and accessibility. The discussion of theories, concepts, and typologies is well supported by cases and examples of recent political developments.' - Rudy Andweg, Leiden University, the Netherlands. "Once again (and now with John McCormick on board) this classic introductory comparative politics text manages to stay relevant, accessible and contemporary. It remains the key text for students new to comparative politics, mixing theoretical clarity with expert country case studies throughout." - Mark Bennister, Canterbury Christchurch University, UK "This is one of, if not the, most comprehensive introductory comparative textbook(s) currently on the market, and this new edition retains all of the strongest features of previous editions." - James Allan, Wittenberg University, USA
