• Il y a des fois où il vaut mieux savoir dire non. Même si c'est une bonne copine qui
    demande. Mais voilà que Boo et Junior, videurs d'une boîte de nuit de Boston, tout en
    muscles et tatouages, acceptent d'impressionner un ex-petit ami violent. Trop contents
    de jouer les chevaliers servants, ils font à nouveau preuve d'un talent bien à eux : se
    mettre dans les pires situations pour s'en sortir avec panache. Mais lorsque le type en
    question est retrouvé mort, Boo et Junior font des coupables parfaits, et les vrais ennuis
    commencent.

  • Boo et Junior ne se sont pas quittés depuis l'orphelinat. Aujourd'hui adultes, ils sont videurs dans un club de Boston. Avec leurs deux cent quinze kilos de muscles et leurs dix mille dollars de tatouages, ça leur va plutôt bien de jouer les durs. Mais quand on leur demande de rechercher la fille du procureur de Boston qui a disparu, ils vont devoir recourir à
    autre chose qu'à leurs biceps. Que la gamine fasse une fugue, soit. Il faut bien que jeunesse se passe. Mais quand elle se retrouve sous l'emprise de ses mauvaises fréquentations, c'est une autre histoire.

  • 'Editors Landman and Robinson have compiled an excellent tour d'horizon of comparative politics. Distinguished contributors explore theoretical and methodological issues as well as examine the critical substantive domains that animate today's comparativists. Graduate students and academics will want to keep this volume on their book shelf' - Professor Mark Irving Lichbach, University of Maryland

    'The SAGE Handbook of Comparative Politics is a major new resource for scholars of comparative politics, and of political science more generally. The Handbook covers the field with admirable thoroughness, but does not sacrifice depth for breadth. The chapters are written by notable scholars who provide rich discussions of their topics, and help to move the sub-discipline forward' - B. Guy Peters, Professor, University of Pittsburgh

    The SAGE Handbook of Comparative Politics presents; in one volume, an authoritative overview of the theoretical, methodological and substantive elements of comparative political science. The 28 specially commissioned chapters, written by renowned comparative scholars, guide the reader through the central issues and debates, presenting a state-of-the-art guide to the past, present and possible futures of the field.

    The Handbook is divided into three parts. The first considers comparative methodologies and reviews the interactions between various sub-fields of comparative politics: political economy; political sociology; area studies; international relations; and institutional analysis. The second section examines nine 'classic' issues of concern to comparativists, including government formation, political behaviour and democratization. In the final section, nine new and emerging areas of comparative research are considered, such as terrorism, electoral corruption, human rights and regional integration.

    The SAGE Handbook of Comparative Politics is an essential resource for researchers in political science, political sociology, political economy, international relations, area studies and all other fields with a comparative political dimension.
