Countries and Concepts: Politics, Geography, Culture Tenth Edition Michael Roskin
Systematically examining politics from around the world, "Countries and Concepts "presents accessible, in-depth studies of ten nations: Britain, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, India, Mexico, Nigeria, and Iran. This text highlights similarities and differences in five key areas of each country to facilitate comparative analysis, defining important concepts and integrating examples from current events throughout. Highly readable and thought-provoking, "Countries and Concepts" introduces students to the politics and governments of the world and bolsters their civic education by considering the historical, political, economic, geographical, and moral aspects of democracy.
New to This Edition A new chapter on India covers this country's tumultuous birth, imperfect but persistent democracy, caste system, political party competition, and recent economic surge. New "Personalities" boxes profile political figures such as Gordon Brown in Britain, Nicolas Sarkozy in France, Dmitry Medvedev in Russia, and Manmohan Singh in India. Updated coverage reflects the latest elections and events in each country, the European Union's 2007 Reform Treaty, and more.
The new MyPoliSciKit for "Countries and Concepts "is a premium online learning resource, featuring multimedia and interactive activities to help students make connections between concepts and current events. The book-specific assessment, video case studies, comparative exercises, mapping exercises, "Financial Times "newsfeeds, and politics blog encourage comprehension and critical thinking. With GradeTracker, instructors can easily follow students' work on the site and their progress on each activity.
