An introduction to the comparative study of political behavior and institutions. Brief consideration of individual cases suggests concepts and insights which will facilitate the study and criteria for judgment of differing types of political systems in differing environments and at different stages of development. Includes elementary explanation of “types,” “environments,” and the concepts of “development.” Prepares the entering student for more intensive studies of particular geographical and institutional areas.
