About the Author:

Edward Sidlow is professor of political science at Eastern Michigan University and EMU's faculty representative to the NCAA. Sidlow received his Ph.D. from The Ohio State University in 1979. He teaches broadly in the area of American politics and has published two books on Congress in addition to numerous articles in professional journals. Prior to his work at EMU, Sidlow served on the faculties of Arizona State University, Miami (OH) University, and Northwestern University, and was an academic administrator at Loyola University Chicago. He has won awards for outstanding teaching at Miami, Northwestern, and EMU, and is often called upon by print and electronic media for political analysis.

Review:

"I believe that the content is exceptional. . . . I would say the greatest strengths of [GOVT] are the fascinating debate and discussion questions and articles throughout the text. In addition, the writing style is very engaging. Finally the writing level is comprehensible to the average community college student, especially with the excellent use of graphs and charts throughout the text."

"I cannot deny the fact that students did not read [my previous textbook] and are reading GOVT. The students have said they prefer this style of text. . . . [T]hey seem to engage with the style of GOVT better than other texts. . . . The Learning Outcomes are a very effective tool, and are especially useful in how they highlight the beginning of the chapter, the beginning of each section of the chapter and then tie it all together with the review cards at the end of the text. The Learning Outcomes easily relate to the Student Learning Outcomes on the course syllabus, bridging the course materials to the course documents."

"It is amazing that in spite of its relative brevity, that it remains a fully comprehensive text. I don't think any key points in the five chapters I reviewed are missed. I learned a lot of new and interesting information by reading this book."

"I have used other textbooks and am currently using GOVT because of its strengths and courage to address more controversial topics without trying to politicize anything--makes for more interesting reading."
