Nothing New Here
I recently ordered a desk copy of this text to consider for possible use in our Ph.D. program in political science. Unfortunately my colleagues and I found the exposition too simplistic and ideological to be adopted by us.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Marer and his collaborators' book is a compilation of commonsense and cliches which were old and irrelevant well before the text got into publication. The book not only contains no new ideas, it has no ideas at all. Stripping out the data sets we have here a style of intellectual exposition which is at the high school level, and is an insult to the intelligence of any educated reader. The only redeeming feature of the book is data which is available from other sources.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
