"The detailed analysis of the institutional environment and policymaking process make this book superior to any other text on the market in this regard." --Matthew C. Zierler, Michigan State University.
"One clear strength of the book is the way it integrates theory with practice--not only by including chapter 10 but also by references to conceptual and theoretical material throughout the narrative. This makes the text useful for students because they can begin to make some of these connections for themselves and it enhances its use as a teaching tool." --John Creed, College of Charleston
