"POLITICS IN A CHANGING WORLD is written at an appropriate level for introductory level college courses. Concepts are well-explained. Boxes and charts are useful. The data presented supports the issues discussed. The concepts, discussion questions, and Internet sites provided at the end of each chapter are a real plus." "This is a very useful and informative text. It covers key areas of political science such as political economy, culture and the role of ideologies. The 'Where on the Web?' boxes, discussion questions, etc. are very helpful and insightful."
