"Organizes the material and places it into context with the case studies."

--Sandra K. Rana "This is a great introductory comparative politics text for both majors and non-majors. The material is accessible for non-discipline students, and easily lends itself to connections with other academic disciplines. The structure of the content is flexible enough to allow for the integration of current events."

--Erika Cornelius Smith "In depth case studies and analysis of particular topics in comparative politics"

--Eli C. Kaul "Orvis and Drogus have authored a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to comparative politics which will engage today's undergraduates."

--Jeffrey Key "An excellent resource for the political scientist who is teaching comparative politics for the first time."

--Immanuel Ness "The graphics in the book are extremely reader-friendly. The language is clear and easy for students to follow. Instructor resources are quite helpful (and a key part of my decision-making). Overall, this is the best comparative politics text for undergrads that I have found. It covers all the important topics in the field and presents them in a way that is accessible to students."

--Laura N. Bell
