Issues in Comparative Politics
Selections from CQ Researcher



October 2011 | 496 pages | CQ Press

Does democracy mean greater accountability and less corruption? Is press freedom a prerequisite for economic development? Should religious fundamentalists have a greater voice in government?

Comparative politics students will benefit from CQ Researcher's award-winning, non-partisan reporting that looks at today's most important problems, ranging from democratization and regime change to policies on immigration, welfare, and religion. Each essay identifies key players, explores what's at stake, and shows how past and current developments impact the future. Reports include maps, charts, a chronology, and a yes/no feature box.
