Examine the Elements of a “Good Society”

The Good Society: An Introduction to Comparative Politics takes a comprehensive look at the question: Why are some governments better than others? Exploring issues related to why certain political institutions provide a better quality of life for their citizens, readers can learn not only how different political systems work, but how they can work better. Redefining the common case-study and thematic approaches used in other courses on the subject, The Good Society approaches comparative politics in a relevant and meaningful way that helps readers understand the way different governments function.
