Comparing Asian Politics presents an invaluable comparative examination of politics and government in three Asian nations: India, China, and Japan. The author elucidates the links between politics and each nation's distinctive cultural and historical contexts and demonstrates the intermingling and grafting of Asian traditions with the influence of Western values and institutions. National identity, political cohesion, and socioeconomic change emerge as central to how politics has developed in each nation-state. Including new focus boxes on political and social issues and other important countries in Asia, this third edition provides insight into topics such as the significance of constitutions in the political process; the parliamentary system in Asia; the regionalization of politics and the importance of levels of government; the decay of one-party rule; the links between development and democratization; and the impact of globalization. This essential book not only illuminates the politics of India, China, and Japan in relation to one another, it also suggests to readers how their own experience of politics can be informed by understanding the politics and government of these three Asian nations.

Sue Ellen M. Charlton is professor of political science at Colorado State University where she teaches courses in comparative politics and international development.Review :
"This is a valuable resource for students studying Asian politics at the college level. It displays sensitivity to the influence of culture and history on contemporary politics, directs attention both to comparative analysis and the implications of globalization, and shows how the examination of Asian politics raises questions about Euro-American assumptions. Superb pictures, useful tables, and notes on books and films for further exploration enrich this well-written text."
—Jana Everett, University of Colorado Denver
"The great appeal of Comparing Asian Politics for an undergraduate classroom is its truly comparative approach. With an engaging style, Charlton emphasizes important regional themes through interwoven case studies of three important Asian countries. She emphasizes historical and cultural contexts in her analysis of contemporary political dynamics and dilemmas. Consequently, readers see linkages between regional and national phenomena and patterns across time—excellent training for the undergraduate students of politics."
—Kimberly Lanegran, Coe College
