Cases and Concepts in Comparative Politics: An Integrated Approach, 1st International Student Edition

ISBN: 9780393644579

A seamless integration of the best-selling conceptual text and casebook.

Based on O’Neil, Fields, and Share’s market-leading textbook and casebook, Cases and Concepts in Comparative Politics: An Integrated Approach integrates concepts and cases in one volume. Students get all of the materials in a straightforward, easy-to-use, and cost-effective way.


  • Avoid flipping back and forth. Apply concepts and make connections seamlessly: Every conceptual chapter of the text adds robust examples from cases and connects them with just-learned concepts. The authors also integrate 13 minicases, all drawn from O’Neil, Fields, and Share’s #1 selling casebook, Cases in Comparative Politics. These cases have been abridged to focus students on key concepts and thus foster better comparison between countries. This approach to integration proves seamless, logical, and easy to use.
  • Content that works: Because the material is drawn from the best-selling textbooks Essentials of Comparative Politics and Cases in Comparative Politics, you know you can trust it to help students understand the key ideas in comparative politics. This approach has been honed over six best-selling editions and now finds its way into one integrated volume.
