Synopsis

Cengage Advantage Books: Comparative Politics Political Economy, Political Culture, and Political Interdependence by Monte Palmer

This affordable CENGAGE ADVANTAGE BOOKS version of COMPARATIVE POLITICS: POLITICAL ECONOMY, POLITICAL CULTURE, AND POLITICAL INTERDEPENCE helps you see politics as a complex process involving a broad range of institutional, behavioral, and textual factors. An analyses of ten countries, plus the EU, representing a cross-section of diverse regions, economic systems, and levels of development, each chapter reviews a country's history; its major political institutions and the way they influence the policy-making process; the role of elites, parties, groups, and masses; and the broader cultural, economic, and international contexts. Each chapter also concludes with a current assessment of the country in terms of the United Nations' definition of good government as well as a discussion of future challenges.

Reviews

The bookas strength is in style appropriate for introductory students, large number of countries to choose from, and sufficient depth for each one. I also like the fact that it tries to situation each country in the global environment.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
