Solution Manual For Introducing Comparative Politics Concepts and Cases in Context 5th Edition By Stephen Orvis, Carol Ann Drogus, ISBN: 9781544374451

“The graphics in the book are extremely reader-friendly. The language is clear and easy for students to follow. Instructor resources are quite helpful (and a key part of my decision-making). Overall, this is the best comparative politics text for undergrads that I have found. It covers all the important topics in the field and presents them in a way that is accessible to students.”

—Laura N. Bell, West Texas A&M University

Organized thematically around important questions in comparative politics—who rules? what explains political behavior? where and why?—Introducing Comparative Politics, Fifth Edition, 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.
