Organized thematically around important questions in comparative politics—who rules? what explains political behavior? where and why?—Introducing Comparative Politics, Fifth Edition by Stephen Orvis and Carol Ann Drogus, integrates a set of extended case studies of 11 core countries directly into the narrative. Serving as touchstones, the cases are placed within the chapters where they make the most sense topically—not separated from the theory or in a separate volume—and vividly illustrate issues in cross-national context. The book’s hybrid organization gives students a more holistic view of comparative politics.

Brief, accessible, and sophisticated, ANALYZING POLITICS, Fifth Edition, presents a clear outline of the discipline of political science and helps students understand the practical and immediate uses of applying analytical approaches to the study of politics. This text is notable for its early coverage of methods and theory and the use of a case study approach--introduced and used to acquire in-depth information about a particular subject while also pointing to its limitations. While the text covers fundamental concepts with contemporary, political examples, discussions of feminism and environmentalism offer a distinct departure from other texts and a unique opportunity to professors and students of political science. In this edition, new chapter-opening examples highlight recent controversies that will spark student interest, frame core concepts of the chapter, and illustrate to students how politics is about their lives.
