Understanding the Political World brings abstract political concepts into focus by connecting them to your life. Authors James Danziger and Lindsey Lupo provide insights into the continually evolving nature of international politics. They use real examples from different political systems to demonstrate how politics are understood throughout the world.
The 13th Edition has been revised and updated with the latest data and information to reflect current state of politics around the globe. Fresh examples, new data and revised topics throughout the text illustrate the underlying concepts and theories that are at the heart of understanding the political world. Updated chapter-opening vignettes cover topics such as the political decay in Honduras and “Chavismo” politics in Venezuela.
