“The graphics in the book are extremely reader-friendly. The language is clear and easy for students to follow. Instructor resources are quite helpful (and a key part of my decision-making). Overall, this is the best comparative politics text for undergrads that I have found. It covers all the important topics in the field and presents them in a way that is accessible to students.”
“An excellent resource for the political scientist who is teaching comparative politics for the first time.”
”Orvis and Drogus have authored a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to comparative politics which will engage today’s undergraduates.”
“In depth case studies and analysis of particular topics in comparative politics”
“This is a great introductory comparative politics text for both majors and non-majors. The material is accessible for non-discipline students, and easily lends itself to connections with other academic disciplines. The structure of the content is flexible enough to allow for the integration of current events.”
“Organizes the material and places it into context with the case studies.”
The book is well-organized and features well-chosen case studies that survey different regime types with appropriate coverage of political, economic, and social features of different countries. I also like the wide-ranging teaching material provided for new and young instroctors like myself.
