REVEL for Countries and Concepts: Politics, Geography, Culture is a critical examination of comparative politics and political systems. The text rejects theories of smoothly functioning systems and embraces the mistakes that countries inevitably make, taking a skeptical approach to understanding international political systems. The Thirteenth Edition stresses fundamental vocabulary and connects the material to real world examples. Understanding politics as a series of ongoing quarrels for which no good solution has been found, the material views international political systems through a dubious lens. This undeniably real examination of our political world makes REVEL for Countries and Concepts the most accurate examination of politics’ true nature.
