“I am most impressed with this project. It is refreshing to read a book by the next generation of scholars as they develop their positions on these fundamental views of the world and of politics. Wiarda is to be commended for this effort; he has constructed an edited volume that will get the attention of a wide readership. This text will be popular both with the graduate school community and undergraduates as well as instructors in beginning comparative politics courses looking to assign a text as supplementary reading to introduce college students to the world of the key grand theories of social science.”--Michael Kryzanek, Professor of Political Science and Executive Director of the Center for International Engagement, Bridgewater State College
