Editorial Reviews

Professor Andrea M. Quenette

Clawson and Oxley’s book is impressive: it offers broad coverage of the relevant areas of interest, but places public opinion in the context of the broader democracy…I especially appreciate the coverage of political trust.

Professor Erin C. Cassese

I like that Public Opinion: Democratic Ideas, Democratic Practice helps my students think more deeply about the processes by which citizens learn about politics, the motivations behind their beliefs, and the biases they bring to political thinking. It facilitates a more sophisticated understanding of citizens as political actors.

Professor Gar Culbert

Clawson and Oxley’s Public Opinion: Democratic Ideals, Democratic Practice is smart, yet accessible to my students. I appreciate that its length and organization has allowed me to use it for both quarter and semester length courses
