"I would highly recommend it [The Politics of Power] to any colleague who is frustrated with the dry, purportedly unbiased traditional American Government textbook."
"I like the fact that it is a very student-friendly text. It addresses issues in a way that appeals to students. It is very well written and organized; it flows logically around its central theme--the inequality of political and economic power; and it gives students a non-conventional view of American politics that addresses issues of power and participation."
"I can think of nothing that is covered in the vast majority of introductory textbooks that is not covered as well, if not better, in the table of contents of this book. I continue to be impressed by the effective integration of American Government politics and the economy. I was particularly impressed with the way in which the authors dealt with the issues of foreign policy and corporate capitalism within the context of globalization."
"The Politics of Power systematically dissects the major institutions and power relationships of the American political system. The authors' critique is thorough and insightful. However, students are not led to cynicism and despair; the authors' purpose is to incite students to political activity and to invite them to invent new policy alternatives and approaches."
