This book was written as a part of a European Union funded project, the aim of which was to adapt several courses taught at Vytautas Magnus University for the purpose of teaching these subjects in English. Introduction to comparative politics was one of these courses. This book draws much of its substantive contents and structure from some of the best contemporary textbooks in comparative politics, namely Daniele Caramani’s (ed.) Comparative Politics (published with Oxford University Press), Kenneth Newton and Jan van Deth’s Foundations of Comparative Politics (Cambridge University Press), Rod Hague and Martin Harrop’s Comparative Government and Politics (Palgrave Macmillan), as well as others. Not aiming for a distinctively original body of teaching material, we set ourselves the task of collecting the best of what these seminal textbooks had to offer and compiling it into one short publication for students at VMU to enjoy. In doing this, however, a careful regard was put on keeping in line with the copyrights of the respective authors, as well as covering the basic subject-matter of the field.
