A thematic, question-driven approach to comparative politics
Revel™ Comparative Politics shows students how to perform real comparative analysis while introducing them to political institutions, identities, and interests. Utilizing an engaging question-based chapter structure, author David Samuels helps students learn to formulate their own political arguments and to thus be more critically informed and engaged political participants. Because politics is an ever-changing subject of study, the author has updated the 2nd Edition to reflect recent developments of note such as the aftermath of the Arab Spring and the rise of nationalism (as evidenced in Brexit and the election of Donald Trump), as well as numerous new examples throughout.
