Editorial Reviews


"The value of [Bardes and Oldendick's Public Opinion] is that is does a good job satisfying two criteria (process and impact), by showing how public opinion is measured, which uses the results and how it has impacted public policy decision-making in several major areas....The greatest strength is its ability to present a large amount of information in a relatively brief text and in a very readable format....The concluding chapters on the future of polling leave the students with the realization that polling is a dynamic process constantly evolving as new tools for and methods of communication come into being....[The book's] strengths are 1) writing style and ability to compact a great amount of information in a relatively brief text, 2) the balance between process and impact, and 3) the appendix on sources of public opinion data and the glossary of terms and their meanings."

"The greatest strengths are its topic-by-topic coverage, consistency of style in using the same basic graphing and tabular approaches to presenting data, and clear writing....The time series graphs and tables are very effective. Indeed, these make the text very teachable....While the first five chapters provide fairly conventional introductions to public opinion and its study, the Bardes-Oldendick text really distinguishes itself from its competitors with these five {chapters 6-10} topical chapters. Each provides historical/political background and then effectively weds time series data from the NES and GSS with effective discussions of the evolution of public opinion and the lines that divide Americans on matters of national importance."
