Description - Comparative Politics in a Globalizing World by Jeffrey Haynes

This book offers an accessible and broadly conceived examination of the impact of globalization on comparative politics. Written in a lucid and lively style, it assumes no prior knowledge of either globalization or comparative politics, and is the ideal textbook for students who want to know more about these crucial topics. The world has changed substantially since the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. There is much debate - but little agreement - about what precisely has happened, and how it affects what goes on politically and economically within countries. At the centre of the debate are the forces and processes of globalization and how they impact on domestic outcomes in various kinds of countries. Comparative Politics in a Globalizing World poses and answers two key questions:* How do various aspects of globalization affect outcomes within countries?* What are the implications of globalization for our understanding of comparative politics? By focusing on three kinds of countries - established democracies, transitional democracies, and non-democracies - Haynes explores how domestic outcomes are affected by contemporary globalization. Throughout the book, key topics are explained, including regionalization, economic globalization, the natural environment, political culture, regime change and democratization, political violence and terrorism, religion, human rights, and women and political participation. These themes are developed within a consistently comparative perspective. This volume will be of immense value to all those interested in one of the great debates of our time. It will be essential reading for students of comparative politics, international relations, and globalization.
