Debuting in its first edition and driven by a question-based approach, Comparative Politics shows readers how to do real comparative analysis while introducing them to political institutions, identities, and interests. This thematic survey uniquely balances the howâ analytical knowledgeâ and the whatâ descriptive knowledgeâ to help readers make their own political arguments and to thus be more critically informed and engaged political participants. .

Popular for its speed, flexibility, and attractive graphics, Stata is a powerful tool for political science students. With Pollock's second edition, students quickly learn Stata with step-by-step instruction, more than 50 exercises, customized datasets, annotated screen shots, boxes that highlight Stata's special capabilities, and guidance on using Stata to read raw data. Updates to this edition include: comprehensive coverage of the Stata Graph Editor; enhanced discussion of graph types, with brand-new coverage of group means and the two way command; new and updated datasets, including GSS and NES (all datasets include additional variables for use on research papers, exams, or assignments); new end-of-chapter exercises, which gradually increase in difficulty to reinforce and build on key concepts; and, improved guidance on using Internet-available data, from downloading to inputting multiple formats- Excel, HTML, and PDF.
