Good brief introduction to comparative politics

The book is a must for anyone beginning the study of politics. It is very comprehensive, well structured and not too long (compared with other ones that I have been "forced" to read). On the other hand it can get pretty dense and boring in some chapters and it is just a "basic" reading. I mean that it only explains concepts, why they are important and gives examples but that is not always enough to give an extended answer to a question such as "Why are presidential systems predominant in Latin America and what are their advantages and disadvantages." or stuff like that. In the overall it is probably the most useful book on the list of recommended readings for a course in Politics, in fact, it is the typical "backbone" for such a course.

The best answer to understand political systems

This book explains how a political systems works. Democratic and non-democratic political systems are analysed deeply in their structures, processes, forms and institutions, and afterwards are compared in order to check the main diferences between them. A fantastic book!
