Overview

A favorite of both instructors and students, Comparative Politics in Transition investigates comparative politics in ten fascinating case studies. Author John McCormick takes a unique approach, discarding the Cold War era "three worlds" taxonomy in order to classify case studies into "arenas" that reflect the contemporary political, economic, and social realities and values of different political systems. The result is a lively, timely, balanced book that pays appropriate attention to case studies from the non-Western world, where most of the world's people live, and to the characteristics that distinguish newly industrializing, less developed, Islamic, and marginal countries.
