<div>"This book is a splendid example of the globalization of scholarship. The authors carefully examine public opinion on the Iraq War in twelve countries, and the editors masterfully integrate and synthesize the results of these country-level studies. We gain notable insight into the dynamics of public opinion on this important international conflict." --Tom W. Smith, director of the Center for the Study of Politics and Society, NORC at the University of Chicago
<div>"With the expansion of democracy in the post Cold War world and new pressures for international intervention in foreign crises, public opinion and its constraint on governments have become of increasing interest and concern worldwide. The editors of this volume have most ably assembled a set of chapters that capture the importance and complexity of this by bringing into the picture not only the publics of the United States and the allies it has counted on in the past, but also India, Turkey, and Mexico." --Robert Y. Shapiro, professor of political science, Columbia University, and author of The Rational Public: Fifty Years of Trends in Americans' Policy Preferences
