Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Introducing Comparative PoliticsSixth Edition!

Organized thematically around important questions in comparative politics, the Sixth Edition of Introducing Comparative Politics integrates a set of extended case studies that vividly illustrate issues in cross-national context for 11 countries. The cases are placed within the chapters where they make the most sense —not separated from the theory or in a separate volume—helping students make connections between theory and practice earlier in the semester and giving them a more holistic view of comparative politics.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
