5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent entry level text. 27 Sep 2012
By PVitrano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm almost certain that most who buy this book will do so out of necessity but it is a great text for any entry level comparative government class. That being said, my only critique is that there is a necessity for a newer edition as some of the information is fairly dated.

5.0 out of 5 stars This meets the mark ! 31 Dec 2012
By T. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
The book started out the way it should have; going through hard definitions like "right" vs "left", key terms such as power,nationalism etc. The insets that provide definitions and the many national profile sections ,which are very uniform (making for easy comparisons)make it apt for classroom use. Although the text brings the reader into to an exciting intro I might say that the reading gets a wee but dry during some parts, but that is only my personal taste.The last section -political economy revs things up again making for an explosive finale. While it delves deeply into topics such as the patronage systems which are still a mainstay in many illiberal democracies, i feel that it shies away from topics like the revolving door in American politics.I'll allow for the excuse that this edition was published in 2007 when that issue was still relatively obscure. All in all a great work for one seeking a grounding in the basics.
