"I have adopted this book repeatedly. It is a fine addition to my theory course since it makes theory more accessible and relevant to students . . . Without this book, students are left with the impression that theory is an abstract academic exercise and a form of torture we impose on them. With this book, Kivisto offers students some evidence that theory is a tool to be used."
"Instead of only thinking about theory during class, I notice that Kivisto’s text gets them to think about theory at work, at home, reading the paper. . . . Sure, I dream of having an undergrad theory section in which students were already capable of rigorous abstract thought and analysis. In the real world, I find Kivisto’s approach essential to raising my students and moving them toward that ideal."
