Happy Customer

The book came in great condition, just as the seller claimed and I received it on time. Very satisfied.

Great Intro to Political Science

This is a great book for anybody interested in an unbiased, fact-based introduction to the field of politics. Danziger does a particularly good job at highlighting the controversial issues that pervade modern politics (welfare, interventionism, etc.) without attempting to steer the opinion of the reader in either direction.

excellent introduction

This is a really well written book that does a great job of explaining how political scientists try to make sense out of politics. It is full of interesting stories and examples, offers understandable explanations of major concepts, and it connects the reader to many of the current events in the world.

Good technical reference for beginners

"Understanding the Political World" is a great reference for those who are new to the political genre. It does well to highlight the major characteristics of political structures and its relation/attachment to economy types.

Very Iformative + Easily Understood

In his book, Danziger does an excellent job in portraying the political world. One might argue that this is essentially what any other book on political science would do, and this true. However, Danziger manages to apply his own personal style to the work. His explanations are clear, and to the point. One of the major features of the book are the "boxes" that appear every so often. These usually contain real life issues, or historical events that demonstrate what is trying to be taught. All in all, James N. Danziger's book is an informative, and well text on the political science.
