Comparative governments and politics is one of the most exciting and dynamic fields in political science. A comparative study of governments facilitates objective and rational judgement about political systems. Comparative politics seeks to study and understand different political systems analytically, systematically and relatively. It looks for patterns, regularities and systemic changes within and among them. Comparative politics concerns itself with a great variety of issues. These include the comparative study of institutions, interest groups, political culture/values and public policies in different countries. Comparative politics also studies the processes by which countries become developed, modern and democratic. This book is designed to provide insights into comparative governments and politics and related approaches for the study of the subject. More specifically, the book focuses on examining politics in a historical framework while engaging with various themes of comparative analysis in developed and developing countries.

COMPARATIVE POLITICS AND GOVERNMENT

Considerable changes are taking place today in the structure and working of governments all over the world. This, in turn, has necessitated a change in the approach to the study of government and politics. This well-organized and systematic study takes into account these developments and shift in approach in the field of comparative government and politics. As the empirical study of political processes, structures and functions forms a major part of comparative political studies, the author examines them in detail. He also analyzes the many variables that are heterogeneous in nature. The book analyzes in tandem comparative government—which involves the study of different political systems with their institutions and functions—and comparative politics, which covers comparative governments and non-state politics. The latter also studies rule making, rule implementing and rule adjudicating. Since different political systems are governed by the constitutions of the nations concerned, the book deals in detail with the constitutions of these countries. While the text gives a comprehensive coverage of constitutions of democracies such as UK, USA, France, Switzerland and Japan, it also deals with the constitutions of authoritarian States like Russia and China. This text should be of great value to undergraduate and postgraduate students of political science as well as aspirants of civil services.
