About the Author:

Lynne E. Ford is Associate Provost for Curriculum and Academic Administration and professor of political science at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. She received her B.A. from The Pennsylvania State University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in government and political behavior from the University of Maryland-College Park. Ford's teaching and research interests include women and politics, elections and voting behavior, political psychology, and civic engagement. She has written articles on women in state legislatures, the under-representation of women in political office in the American South, and work-family policy in the United States. She also has co-authored Declarations of Independence: Women and Political Power in 19th Century American Novels; Thinking About Public Policy; Public Opinion: Measuring the American Mind; and American Government and Politics Today.

Review:

"The book will fit very well in my teaching style. . . . Every chapter has tables, graphs, charts, [and] maps that can serve as a focal point for class discussion and to visually assist students in grasping complex ideas. The creative 'What if's' and 'Politics with a Purpose' once again are excellent mechanisms to aid in class discussion. Just as important, the book is aesthetically pleasing, it is easy on the eyes, [and] the font style and size prevent the book from appearing dry and intimidating."

"The book is very well written and easy to understand, which is why I have used it in the past. It is very succinct in explaining the topics and does not veer off into such obscure detail that would confuse or complicate matters for the student."
