Description

Combining thematic and country approaches to show students what comparative politics is really about, The Good Society organizes itself around a key question–why are some countries better than others at improving their citizens’ lives?

This brief survey offers a focused look at political institutions and uses in-depth country studies to compare how different institutional arrangements yield different political results. By concentrating on how politics affects citizens’ lives, The Good Society offers a uniquely relevant introduction to comparative politics that goes to the heart of the field and helps students develop a critical point-of-view.
