POLS 250, Comparative Politics, Spring 2015
Most undergraduates embarking on a degree in international relations will be compelled, at least in their first year of study, to become familiar with the broader aspects of political science as an academic discipline. This process will invariably include a course on political philosophy and a general politics course in which political systems, political interaction and the machinery of government are discussed. In an effort to stress to students the importance of avoiding ethnocentrism, these courses are often constructed around a comparative politics framework. This post reviews four publications which might be considered introductory texts for students studying comparative politics or a module in which political systems and political ideas are discussed. Undergraduates undertaking this type of course are relatively well served by the academic literature. Most are written by active academics, in many cases with extensive undergraduate teaching experience. Indeed many publications have been produced with specific courses in mind or subsequently had courses built around them.
