Comparative politics.
Domestic responses to global challenges.

Balancing theory with application and featuring an exciting full-color design and an engaging, student-friendly writing style, COMPARATIVE POLITICS uses a unique theme--Domestic Responses to Global Challenges--to introduce key concepts and examine the growing interdependence of strong and weak states. Each chapter focuses on one of 11 countries or on the European Union, and four additional countries are available as online chapters or in a custom print solution (Brazil, Canada, Japan, and South Africa). The introduction establishes a comparative structure based on five themes: conflict, democratization, economic liberalization, globalization, and challenges, which are then explored for each country through boxed features that are color-coded for easy cross-reference and comparison. The countries discussed are categorized by economic development, helping students hone their skills of comparison, synthesis, and interpretation by studying countries of similar economic status. With this uniquely effective text, students can gain an understanding of important political trends and concepts, an exposure to politics in a number of countries, and a desire to dig more deeply into the fascinating field of comparative politics.

New to 7th Edition

* New opening vignettes examine how the current economic crisis is affecting each country and also take a look at how the world is reacting to the 2008 election of President Barack Obama.
* The text has been thoroughly updated with coverage of recent important events and a thoughtful consideration of the difficulties and new social, economic, and political possibilities in today's world. Key topics include the economic downturn, the 2008 U.S. election, the war and transition in Iraq, and the uprisings in Iran after the 2009 election.
* The globalization theme has been given additional focus.
* A new online chapter on Brazil.


* The text covers 11 countries and the European Union, as well as 4 additional countries online (Brazil, Canada, Japan, and South Africa), in extensive detail, organizing chapters based on economic development: industrialized democracies, communist and formerly communist countries, and less developed countries. Boxes in each chapter make insightful comparative analysis easy by highlighting the nature of conflict, democratization, challenges, economic liberalization, and globalization.
* Hand-in-hand with the theme of Domestic Responses to Global Challenges, COMPARATIVE POLITICS incorporates more international relations as it relates to the discipline than other texts. It also offers the strongest coverage of current events.
* Charles Hauss employs an engaging, conversational tone throughout that sparks students' interest and encourages reading. A vibrant, full-color design and carefully chosen photos bring the country studies to life.
* Chapters on individual nations and the European Union open with a map of the area under consideration and a table with essential demographic data, providing an immediate and useful reference point for students and a convenient resource to use while studying the material.
* Brief boxed features explore topics of special relevance to a particular country or region, and profiles of key political figures are presented throughout the text. These features help students broaden their perspective and deepen their understanding of each area's unique qualities, challenges, and history.
* Critical thinking exercises at the end of each chapter encourage students to compare, synthesize, and interpret material from the text, supporting a more thorough understanding of key concepts.

About the Author

Charles Hauss
Charles "Chip" Hauss wears three professional hats: adjunct professor in the Department of Public and International Affairs at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia; author of books on conflict resolution, comparative politics, and international relations; and Director of Policy and Research at Search for Common Ground USA. Before joining the faculty at George Mason in 1993, Hauss received his BA from Oberlin College and his MA and PhD from The University of Michigan. He then spent 1975 to 1992 at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. From 1995 to 1998, he was Visiting Professor at Reading University in the United Kingdom. Hauss has taught a variety of courses in comparative politics, international relations, and peace studies. Geographically, he is most interested in Western Europe, the United States, and the former Soviet Union. Substantively, his teaching has concentrated on how societies implement large-scale social and political change in a nonviolent manner. He includes active use of the Internet in all of his teaching and is the author of seven books. COMPARATIVE POLITICS is one of the most widely used textbooks in the field. INTERNATIONAL CONFLICT RESOLUTION was published in July 2001. BEYOND CONFRONTATION (1996) explores the need for and possibility of cooperative conflict resolution. In addition, he has written two books on French politics, one on the new left of the 1960s/1970s and the other on the first quarter century of Gaullist rule. He also has translated Bernard Chavance's THE TRANSFORMATION OF COMMUNIST SYSTEMS from French into English.
