Summary
"A comprehensive and systematic introduction to the institutions and patterns of behavior of political systems worldwide. The book is concept rather than country based, looking in the depth at the key elements necessary to an understanding of political institutions and political change. It also looks at the part played by bureaucracies, the military and the courts in political life and the extent to which people participate directory in politics"--provided by publisher
