Why do we compare nations? How do we compare nations? What are the 'big issues' in Comparative Politics? Issues and Methods in Comparative Politics provides students with the answers to these fundamental questions. It is an accessible and user-friendly text which explores the strategies of comparative research in political science. It begins by examining the different methods and then highlights some of the big issues in comparative politics, using topical examples emphasizing the act of comparing as a means to explain observed political phenomena. The second edition is fully updated and includes a new chapter looking at comparative studies on Human Rights protection, a popular topic with students. Part I shows how and why comparative politics is important, the strengths and weaknesses of different comparative methods, and the problems encountered in conducting political research. Part II addresses the dominant issues in comparative politics. It contains an entirely new chapter comparing human rights and chapters on economic development and democracy, violent political dissent and revolution, non-violent political dissent and social movements, transitions to democracy, and institutional design and democratic performance. Part III draws important lessons for comparative politics and discusses the key challenges for the field. The book is designed to make a complex subject easier and more accessible for students and contains - Briefing boxes explaining key concepts and ideas- Suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter- A glossary of terms
