Comparative Politics Today, AP® Edition includes the most up-to-date descriptions and analysis of the political systems within each of the countries that appear on the AP Exam. Written by leading comparativists and area study specialists, this text's opening chapters outline key concepts in politics and government and show how theoretical frameworks describe and analyze the differences and the similarities among countries. In keeping with the emphasis on general theory in the AP course, the early chapters set the stage for studying the subject by discussing a range of processes and structures for comparing political systems. Each country study includes the most current information and consistently applies the theoretical framework to explore broad issues. With numerous photos, figures, and tables to clarify complex political data and structures, Comparative Politics Today, AP® Edition helps students learn about other countries, regions, and the world, and it will help them ask–and answer–fundamental questions about politics and government.
