"The organization of the book and chapter themes are unique, and this translates into a unique way to learn and study the material. This different way of covering the necessary topics is a positive. Also, the Magstadt goes much farther than others in its coverage of history, statistics and data."-Shari MacLachlan, Palm Beach State College
"The text is thorough, in a way that many intro to poli sci texts are not. It has good coverage of the many subfields of political science. Lastly, it covers many ideas I have not seen in other texts, such as utopian and totalitarian politics." -Scott Wallace, Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis
