Jeffrey Kopstein and Mark Lichbach. Introduction Comparative Politics and Political Science

Jeffrey Kopstein and Mark Lichbach. Introduction Comparative Politics and Political Science. How Comparativists Practice Their Craft: Concepts and Methods Regime Types Tools of Analysis: Interests, Identities, and Institutions. This book originated during many hours of pleasant conversation about teach-ing comparative politics at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Out of these conversations emerged the idea of an introductory textbook that would convey to students the main currents in contemporary comparative politics. These currents are summed up here under three rubrics: interests, identities, and institutions.

Now in its third edition, this unique textbook remains a favorite for introductory undergraduate courses in comparative politics. It features twelve theoretically and historically grounded country studies that show how the three major concepts of comparative analysis-interests, identities, and institutions-shape the politics of nations and regions. Written in a style free of heavy-handed jargon and organized to address the concerns of contemporary comparativists, this textbook provides students with the conceptual tools and historical background they need to understand the politics of our complex world. This third edition introduces completely new chapters on the European Union, France, and Nigeria.

We used this book for our undergrad intro Pol S class. I'm not sure why people are giving it bad reviews though.

It's not a hard read at all and each chapter provides you with the basic history, important players & events. It's pretty updated, most if not all cover political changes up until...I think.. 2008?
Like I said, it's a basic overview of each country (around ~40 pages per chapter), if you want in-depth info of just one country or you're in a master course, it's not for you.

And obviously if you don't like history or political science, don't read it.

Its ok

This book definitely looks like a good introduction to Comparative Politics. However, the Table of Contents posted on this book's site here is not the table of contents of the book that will be sent to you. Knowing that, I regret having bought through Marketplace. Overall, my experience with Amazon has been consistently satisfactory, and I will continue to shop with the company, but I am disappointed by the false advertising here, and I hope Amazon changes the advertised table of contents.

Thank you.

I have no idea why people are giving this textbook a bad review. This was used in my Introductory Political Science class first year University - coming from a completely uninformed background I found this textbook straight forward, very informative and very enjoyable. Definitely recommended!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It gives in interesting look into the governments of the world and opened my eyes to the world around me. It is interesting to compare our government to those of other countries.
