As the only introductory text to cover both comparative politics and international relations, and contextualise this material with a wide range of international examples, it is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and global introductory politics textbook on the market.Written by three experts in the field, this book takes a balanced approached to the subject, serving as a strong foundation for further study. The material is explored in an accessible way for introductory study, but takes an analytical approach which encourages more critical study and debate, helping students to develop the vital skills they need for a politics degree. New to this edition A new chapter on democracies, democratization, and authoritarian regimes adds to the broad coverage of the volume, introducing students to politics in both democratic and non-democratic systems.An increased number of 'key debate' boxes encourages active learning and critical thinking, challenging students to consider multiple perspectives.A reworked concluding chapter on 'Rising powers in a post-globalization world' helps students to consider contemporary and possible future developments in the political world.
