‘This is the most comprehensive integration of globalization with the field of comparative politics I have read. It deserves a wide audience.’
Donley T. Studlar, West Virginia University
"This is a very well researched book both theoretically and empirically, which is strengthened by selective use of case studies. It is tightly focused and the chapters are woven together effectively.
Combining provocative questions with nuanced analysis, Jefrey Haynes can not be accused of shying away from complex theories and issues. His scholarly endeavours deserve commendation."
Political Studies Review
- Major new textbook for students of comparative politics and globalization. Focusing on three kinds of regime - established democracies, transitional democracies, and non-democracies, Haynes explores how contemporary globalization is affecting domestic politics across the world.
- Throughout the book, key topics are explained, including regionalization, economic globalization, the natural environment, political culture, regime change and democratization, political violence and terrorism, religion, human rights, and women and political participation.
- Challenges the artificial disciplinary gap between comparative politics and international relations, and tackles complex theoretical and empirical material with clarity and verve.
- Offers a fresh approach to the study of international politics today.
