John McCormick joins Rod Hague and Martin Harrop as co-author for the 10th edition of this renowned and bestselling textbook. Taking a thematic approach to Comparative Politics, it introduces students to the key concepts, structures and arguments that will enable them to successfully compare political systems across the globe. Taking full account of the different institutions of government and political cultures that exist around the world, the authors offer detailed analysis of a range of democracies and authoritarian regimes. In addition, an array of carefully-designed pedagogical features equip students with the tools and critical mind-set to explore debates and spark discussion.

With its impressively comprehensive coverage, the book can be used as the sole text for teaching undergraduate courses worldwide on Comparative Politics, Comparative Government, Introduction to Politics and Introduction to Political Science.

This is one of, if not the, most comprehensive introductory comparative textbooks currently on the market, and this new edition retains all of the strongest features of previous editions. I like the book a lot, precisely because of the level of detail, and coverage of major theoretical approaches in the chapters. (James Allan, Wittenberg University, USA)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 Christ Church University, UK)
