From the Publisher"The Harrison text offers up-to-date and complete information [and is] well organized. . . . The illustrative 'Focuses' are particularly appealing because they can be used for class discussion and debate, illustrating the material presented in the chapter."
"It is written at the proper level, relatively simply, for undergraduates with little or no background in the subject matter. It is well organized, and the units (parts) break at appropriate times for testing purposes. . . . I particularly appreciate the controversies sections. I like my students to understand that there are legitimate disputes among credible scholars. It makes them more mature and critical in their approach to the subject matter. I try to elicit discussion on these topics."
"I like the integration of power into the topics of the book. Power surrounds us in every aspect of our lives. . . . The case studies are important as they give a face to the material presented in the book. I also like the international perspectives to the topics in each of the chapters."
