Comparative Politics

Integrating Theories, Methods, and Cases

Third Edition

J. Tyler Dickovick and Jonathan Eastwood

  • A unique structure offers the best of thematic and country-by-country approaches. Sixteen succinct thematic chapters—organized around the "big questions" in the field—are followed by a separate section at the end of the book offering full-length profiles and case studies for twelve countries.
  • Each chapter integrates several standalone country case studies in "Case in Context" boxes; these features tie into the narrative, pose questions, and point students to the full case discussions in the country profiles
  • "Thinking Comparatively" sections at the end of each chapter introduce new methodological tools and help students apply the theories and concepts covered in each chapter
  • "Thinking It Through" questions help students test their ability to apply comparative politics theories to cases
  • "Research Prompts" in every case study section help students develop comparative projects and papers
