This accessible introduction to the theory and practice of comparative politics views politics as a complex process involving a broad range of institutional, behavioral, and textual factors. An analyses of ten countries, plus the EU, representing a cross-section of diverse regions, economic systems, and levels of development, each chapter reviews a country's history; its major political institutions and the way they influence the policy-making process; the role of elites, parties, groups, and masses; and the broader cultural, economic, and international contexts. Each chapter also concludes with a current assessment of the country in terms of the United Nations' definition of good government as well as a discussion of future challenges.
