About the Author:

Neal Riemer (late) was the Andrew V. Stout Professor of Political Philosophy at Drew University. He was the recipient of outstanding teaching awards at both the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Drew. His books include The Revival of Democratic Theory, The Democratic Experiment, and The Future of the Democratic Revolution: Toward a More Prophetic Politics. He was editor and/or coauthor of Problems of American Government, World Affairs: Problems and Prospects, and New Thinking and Developments in International Politics: Opportunities and Dangers.

Douglas W. Simon is professor of political science at Drew University, specializing in international affairs, U.S. foreign policy, international organizations, and national security.

Joseph Romance is associate professor of political science at Drew University, where he focuses on American politics and political theory. Romance is the coauthor of A Republic of Parties? Debating the Two-Party System and is a contributor to, and a coeditor of, two new books, Democracy and Excellence: Conflict or Concord? and Democracys Literature. His articles and reviews have appeared in American Review of Politics and Newsday, and he has contributed to numerous edited volumes, including Progressive Politics in the Global Age.

Review:

[Riemer, Simon, and Romance] have succeeded greatly in providing a text that is explicitly linked to political theory throughout . . . it is well-written, sophisticated, and comprehensive. -Excerpt from a review of The Challenge of Politics, Second Edition in Journal of Political Science Education (Vol. 4, Issue 2, 2008) --- Stephen Bird, Clarkson University, and Joshua C. Yesnowitz, Boston University

The Challenge of Politics is an absolutely ideal text for an introductory course. I have used several texts over the years and consider this text to be by far the best that I have used. The text begins with a thoughtful discussion of politics and political science. The text then examines the ethical, empirical and prudential aspects of politics and political science helping the students see the different approaches and components of political science. The text is clearly informed by the literature in political science, but the text is not littered with arcane jargon. In short, it is concise, comprehensive in its coverage, and current in its research. --- Michael Coulter, Grove City College
