A thematic overview of comparative politics coupled with country studies that bring theory to life
Revel™ Comparative Politics Today: A World View combines a comprehensive thematic overview of the discipline with in-depth country studies written by expert scholars in their respective fields. Emphasizing the similarities as well as the differences among governments around the globe, authors G. Bingham Powell, Jr., Kaare W. Strøm, Melanie Manion, and Russell J. Dalton help students to sort through the world’s complexity and to recognize patterns that lead to genuine political insight. Focusing as in previous editions on the challenges of democratization and globalization, the 12th Edition presents significantly updated coverage in the 12 detailed country studies as well as contemporary data throughout.

Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
