He is completing a new book tentatively entitled THE CASE FOR GRIDLOCK.Review:
"POLITICS IN A CHANGING WORLD is a superb comparative text that contains in addition to the essential themes of government and politics a number of illustrative cases, richly presented and thoughtfully analyzed."
"I particularly liked reading the 'text-boxes.' The section headings are well demarcated, making it very easy for students to follow the arguments."
"Ethridge and Handelman's textbook focuses on the issues that matter most to this course."
"This is a very useful and informative text. It covers key areas of political science such as political economy, culture and the role of ideologies. The 'Where on the Web?' boxes, discussion questions, etc. are very helpful and insightful."
"POLITICS IN A CHANGING WORLD is written at an appropriate level for introductory level college courses. Concepts are well-explained. Boxes and charts are useful. The data presented supports the issues discussed. The concepts, discussion questions, and Internet sites provided at the end of each chapter are a real plus."
