Comparison is an essential research method in political science. This book helps students to understand comparison as an academic instrument, to grasp its necessity and its effective purpose for research. For that reason, Leonardo Morlino answers three deceptively simple questions: why compare; what to compare; and how to compare. Doing so, he not only considers the comparative tradition but also takes into account methodological innovations of the last two decades.
