  • Political Science with a twist Sep 20, 2007
    by dkopp

    While this book is easier to read than some, I found some biases in it and some of the data may not be accurate. It seems that all of the professors they had evaluate it had something to add which causes for a disjointed read at times. This book doesn't follow the general flow I am used to since it jumps around. It often states things as if it is fact while they are footnoted from some other work they are not qualified. Some of these comments are opinionated. It is an okay book though if you have to study Political Science and can keep a check on the biases. I would like to see an equal and factual text that allows the reader to come to their own conclusion.
    The book came in excellent condition and in a timely manner.
