Review:

"Excellent idea to make the course more interactive considering the wealth of on-line data now available. This plan will being current comparative data quickly to students making the course much more exciting."

"It gives students the opportunity for hands-on research in an introductory course. I have found that students sometimes have a hard time relating to the course because they have not had enough experience to understand the relevance to their lives. With this text, they could at least be able to explore connections between political events, structures, laws, etc."
