Comparative Government and Politics

比较政府与政治是一门集合政治,经济和社会学等科目一体的综合科目,主要是通过对中国、英国、墨西哥、俄罗斯、伊朗和尼日利亚这六个国家的政治、经济和社会挑战系统学习,运用比较方法来了解和分析政治结构。此外,学生还将从外部环境因素和内部政治结构等方面分析各国政府在面对相似问题采取的不同手段的直接原因。

Course Description: 

AP Comparative Government and Politics introduces students to the rich diversity of political life outside the United States. The course uses a comparative approach to examine the political structures; policies; and the political, economic, and social challenges among six selected countries: Great Britain, Mexico, Russia, Iran, China, and Nigeria. Additionally, students examine how different governments solve similar problems by comparing the effectiveness of approaches to many global issues.

Course Structure: 

The seven-day course will examine one daily theme and it will spend an additional session reviewing and tying together major concepts. Students compare and contrast political institutions and processes across six countries (Great Britain, Mexico, Russia, Iran, China, and Nigeria) and analyze and interpret data to derive generalizations. Topics include:

Introduction to Comparative Politics

Sovereignty, Authority, and Power

Political Institutions

Citizens, Society, and the State

Political and Economic Change

Public Policy The emphasis should be on broad trends that allow comparison, rather than on details that are unrelated to larger trends and concepts

Course Materials: 

Due to the condensed nature of this course, the Barron's AP Comparative Government and Politics book will be used. In addition, the class will focus heavily on case studies that allow students to analyze the differences between governments.
