"Taken as a whole, the volume captures both the excitement and the considerable challenges of all the cumulative turns in political analysis: cultural, historical, linguistic, and spatial with hints at new directions that beckon. While a few chapters function as guides to confronting the methods police, most function as invitations to diverse kinds of thoughtfulness and openness to the multi dimensional character of politics as it unfolds in space, time, and mind."--Contemporary Sociology
"Judging from the editors, contributors, and topics covered, the forthcoming Oxford Handbooks of Political Science will be a landmark series. I was especially impressed by the range of the volume on political institutions - including international institutions as well as a whole variety of domestic ones. The contributors to this and other volumes are first-rate. This is a series that not only university libraries, but more specialized social science and political science libraries, will want to have on their shelves."--Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Princeton University
"This extraordinary series offers 'state of the art' assessments that instruct, engage, and provoke. Both synoptic and directive, the fine essays across these superbly edited volumes reflect the ambitions and diversity of political science. No one who is immersed in the discipline's controversies and possibilities should miss the intellectual stimulation and critical appraisal these works so powerfully provide."--Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University

Though I might not read this to my kids as a bedtime story (which I am sure would put them to sleep quickly), it is a great piece of literature to gradually expand one's understanding of the field from.
