Overview

Balancing theory with application and now in a new, exciting full-color design, Dr. Hauss' COMPARATIVE POLITICS is the best-selling comprehensive text for the Introduction to Comparative Politics course. The book uses a unique theme-DOMESTIC RESPONSES TO GLOBAL CHALLENGES-to introduce key concepts and examines the growing interdependence among strong and weak states through the discussion of 12 countries. The introduction establishes a comparative structure based on 5 themes that are treated as appropriate for each individual country in color-coded boxed features. The themes are conflict, democratization, economic liberalization, globalization, and challenges. The countries discussed are categorized by economic development, helping students develop their skills of comparison, synthesis and interpretation amongst countries of similar economic status. Students will gain an understanding of some of the most important general trends, an exposure to politics in a number of countries, and a desire to dig more deeply into this fascinating and exciting field of comparative politics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Hauss is excellent in clarity, style, content, and pedagogy. In fact, in pedagogy Hauss is the best I have seen; it clearly, concisely and cogently explains both basic and complex ideas to the students. Hauss contains excellent charts and graphs, leader profiles, and website connections and bibliographies."

"Compared to other texts I have used and reviewed, the Hauss text is the most balanced and comprehensible for the student of an introductory course. It is neither too dense nor too facile. The material is presented in a very accessible and easy to digest manner, well and coherently written and organized. The Hauss text is a good mix of the abstract necessities for future political science majors but with a balance of explanation and definition for general students." "The three strengths are 1) accessibility and language, the text is thoroughly readable and digestible by undergraduates; 2) Good range of countries to choose from, including the EU and numerous LDCs which are often neglected by other texts; and 3) the chapters are easily organized which makes lecture preparation and students' organization of notes and lectures very useful."

"I believe that Hauss has provided one of the most engaging and valuable texts for use in introductory comparative politics courses. Unlike most other texts the language, examples, and organization help students better understand and relate the complex theoretical concepts and phenomena of states and their political systems. The consistency from chapter to chapter provides an excellent framework for students to grasp and learn the fundamental arguments and dilemmas in comparative politics. I highly recommend this text to any faculty teaching an introductory comparative politics course."
