In this collection of articles, updated with viewpoints on the post- 9/11 world, contributors examine the reasons for comparing political systems, the political changed brought by globalization and modernization, state and identity, revolution and protest, democracies, situations of transition to democracy, authoritarianism, the challenge of Islam, political parties, and political performance. One very interesting set of articles examines the question of whether institutions matter, and what sort of constitution would best suit a divided society. Each article includes its own notes and bibliography and the editor provides a general list of further reading. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
