"This is an extraordinarily good textbook. It is one of the finest I have read in any field of government and politics."— Timothy Conlan, George Mason University
"It is a short and well-written introduction to the topic that covers briefly most of the topics I want to cover in an introductory class...It dispels many of the myths about government that many students bring to the class while, at the same time, covering much of the relevant material."— James Simmons, University of Wisconsin
"Not surprisingly, Chapter 7 is excellent because Dr. Stillman is the best contemporary writer on PA’s (Public Administration) intellectual history."— Mark C. Hoffman, Grand Valley State University
