About the Author:

Donald G. Tannenbaum teaches Political Philosophy at Gettysburg College. He is the Founding Editor of COMMONWEALTH: A JOURNAL OF POLITICAL SCIENCE, has written widely for scholarly books, journals, and symposia, served as consultant to the Jacob K. Javits Fellowship Program Review Board of the United States Department of Education and to a number of Political Science departments, and been President of the Northeastern Political Science Association (1993-1994) and the Pennsylvania Political Science Association (1988-1990). Professor Tannenbaum received his Ph.D. in Politics from New York University, which named him a University Honors Scholar. In 2002, he was honored with an American Political Science Association/Pi Sigma Alpha citation recognizing him as a recipient of a campus-wide teaching award, which he attributes, in part, to his use of this text in several of his classes. In 2011, he was named chair of the Hubert H. Humphrey Award Committee by the Council of the American Political Science Association.

Review:

"Three strengths are brevity, analytical framework, and inclusiveness."

"First, I like the length of the book. Second, on the whole, it has a good mix of depth v. breadth. Third, again on the whole, it is well-written."
