Product Description: The most complete, flexible, and affordable Comparative Politics package on the market.

Essentials of Comparative Politics introduces students to the concepts that political scientists use to study and compare political systems and the particulars of specific political systems. The text is available with a corresponding casebook of 14 country studies and a reader-the three components can be used individually or in any combination.

The Third Edition has been revised and updated to include the most current and relevant examples; it includes a robust suite of emedia resources for students and instructors. The Comparative Politics package provides maximum value to students-the textbook/casebook/reader package is priced comparably to most standalone country studies textbooks.

FEATURES

A conceptual framework that is easy for students to apply

Essentials of Comparative Politics provides a clear framework based on the fundamental concepts that political scientists use to compare countries. Beginning with the most basic terms (the state, regimes, nations, political economic systems), O'Neil gives students the tools they need to make meaningful comparisons. The Third Edition is revised and updated with new data and current examples, and a new chapter organization helps students more intuitively compare and understand political systems.

Up-to-date coverage of topics students are interested in

Examples have been thoroughly updated to make the topics as relevant as possible for students. Updates include new discussions of Iraq, Hugo Ch#65533;vez, and even the Second Life online role-playing game in the context of globalization.

Student friendly pedagogy reinforces the main concepts

No other book on the market has an art program that covers the concepts as thoroughly and clearly. Features include In Focus boxes that summarize important ideas students will want to review and Institutions in Action boxes that describe how institutions work around the world. Figures and tables in every chapter illustrate important points with real-world data, and chapter previews aid study with an outline of the chapter to come.

Innovative emedia resources

Our free and open student website includes video exercises using embedded clips from official news channels on YouTube, such as Al-Jazeera, CBS, and BBC Worldwide. These videos will also appear on an interactive Google Map. Conceptual quizzes and country quizzes on the website allow students to review key ideas from the conceptual framework of the text and key details from the countries discussed in the casebook.

The Third Edition offers a library of digital images of various key places and political figures for instructors. These high-resolution images are optimized for easy integration into PowerPoint presentations.

A complete package offers flexibility to instructors and value to students

Essentials of Comparative Politics, Third Edition, is available with a corresponding casebook of 14 country studies and a reader-the three components can be used individually or in any combination. Essentials of Comparative Politics textbook/casebook package costs $20-30 less than the leading country studies books alone. The package of our textbook, casebook, and reader costs just a few dollars more than most standalone country studies books.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
