Politics in a Changing World A Comparative Introduction to Political Science by Marcus E. Ethridge, Howard Handelman

POLITICS IN A CHANGING WORLD introduces students to the diverse discipline of political science by providing a foundation for understanding political life in a systematic and comparative way. The text includes a combination of in-depth chapters on important concepts in political science and a series of brief country studies. POLITICS IN A CHANGING WORLD helps students to acquire not only a better understanding of the actors and institutions that play a part in diverse political systems, but to gain a sense of how and why they act in relation to one another, and what their actions mean for the political culture.


The book is clearly written but not simplistic...It is a well-rounded introduction to political science. It has the advantage of being conceptual and comparative...The section covering international relations seems better developed and more in tune with the current literature than most.
