Description : Written by a distinguished group of comparativists, this innovative and accessible introductory text surveys 12 key countries organized according to their level of political development: established democracies, transitional democracies, and non-democracies. The country studies illuminate four comparative themes in a global context: the world of states, examining the interaction of states within the international order; governing the economy, covering the role of the state in economic management; the democratic idea, discussing the pressure for more democracy and the challenges of democratization; and the politics of collective identities, studying the political impact of diverse attachments and sources of group identity. All 12 country studies, as well as two additional studies, are available in an online database. Instructors may choose from among these chapters (a minimum of 7) to create a customized text.

Description : Readings in Comparative Politics is divided into six sections—States and Regimes, Governing the Economy, the Democratic Challenge, Politics of Collective Identity, Political Institutions and Public Policies, and Political Challenges and Changing Agendas—that correspond to the four main themes found in Kesselman's Introduction to Comparative Politics survey text. The selected readings are drawn from a variety of published, unpublished, and electronic sources. They tend to be general and theoretical in nature and were carefully selected to provide a good sample of the wide range of popular and scholarly views relevant to the major topics presented in introductory courses. The readings provide an extended opportunity to consider the four main themes used in the textbook: A World of States, Governing the Economy, the Democratic Challenge, and the Politics of Collective Identity. Excerpts are culled from a variety of sources including scholarly articles from journals and books, op-ed and newspaper articles, and statements by interest groups and NGOs in the U.S. and other countries, including published sources and material disseminated by the Internet.

Description : On October 1, 2019, the People's Republic of China (PRC) will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its founding. And what an eventful and tumultuous seven decades it has been! During that time, under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), China has been transformed from one of world's poorest countries into one of its fastest growing economies, and from a weak state barely able to govern or protect its own territory to a rising power that is challenging the United States for global influence. But in the late 1950s, the PRC experienced the most deadly famine in human history, caused largely by the actions and inactions of its leaders. Not long after, there was a collapse of government authority that pushed the country to the brink of (and in some places actually into) civil war and anarchy. And in 1989, the CCP unleashed the army to brutally crush demonstrations by students and others calling for political reform. China is now, for the most part, peaceful, prospering, and proud. The CCP maintains a firm grip on power through a combination of harsh repression and popular support largely based on its recent record of promoting rapid economic growth. Yet, the party and country face serious challenges on many fronts, including a slowing economy, environmental desecration, pervasive corruption, extreme inequalities, ethnic unrest, and a rising tide of social protest. Politics in China provides an accessible yet authoritative introduction to how the world's most populous nation and rapidly rising global power is governed today. The third edition has been extensively revised, thoroughly updated, and includes a new chapter on the internet and politics in China. The book's chapters provide overviews of major periods in China's modern political history from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, examinations of key topics in contemporary Chinese politics, and analyses of developments in four important areas located on China's geographic periphery: Tibet, Xinjiang, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
