Now in a new edition, Comparative Politics provides an exciting and authoritative introduction to all of the core areas of the field. Featuring a diverse range of perspectives from expert international contributors, this anthology explores the methods and theories of comparative politics and also examines the institutions, actors, processes, and policies at the heart of political systems around the world. The selections elucidate the major themes and also present students with a wealth of empirical data and examples--drawn from both developing regions and industrial countries--that demonstrate similarities and differences in practice and encourage further research. The text is enhanced by excellent pedagogical features including readers' guides, key points, questions, a guide to further reading, text boxes, and a glossary.

Daniele Caramani is Professor of Comparative Politics at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland.
Review from previous edition: "Daniele Caramani has assembled a star-studded group of contributors. This will be a major textbook. As in previous works, Caramani has worked particularly hard on assembling data which will be of use to all students of comparative government - and their teachers." --Iain McLean, Professor of Politics, Oxford University
"An extraordinarily ambitious book by an impressive roster of accomplished authors. They cover, in an authoritative way, a range of important topics in comparative politics. There is sufficient material here to please teachers of many different types of courses." --Michael J. Laver, New York University
"This second edition updates and expands the remarkable achievement of this user-friendly textbook. It strikes an unmatched balance between analytics and empirics, methods and theories, structures, institutions and actors. Simply the best textbook on comparative politics." --Stefano Bartolini, European University Institute
"A very impressive and up-to-date edited volume which covers the developments of comparative politics, its theory and method, and a large number of substantive themes. It is well conceived, well executed and written by an impressive team of contributors." --Paul Webb, University of Sussex
"The first edition of this groundbreaking text already incorporated the latest teaching aids, ancillary online material and a wealth of factual and statistical data. Besides updating these, the second edition has been expanded to cover trade unions and networks of decision-making, and reviews the progress of globalization in light of the world financial crisis. A thoroughly up to date and comprehensive text, which teachers and analysts as well as students will benefit from reading." --Ian Budge, University of Essex
