About the Author:

James Q. Wilson most recently taught at Boston College and Pepperdine University. He was Professor Emeritus of Management and Public Administration at UCLA and was previously Shattuck Professor of Government at Harvard University. He wrote more than a dozen books on the subjects of public policy, bureaucracy, and political philosophy. He was president of the American Political Science Association (APSA), and he is the only political scientist to win three of the four lifetime achievement awards presented by the APSA. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian award, in 2003. Professor Wilson passed away in March of 2012 after battling cancer. His work helped shape the field of political science in the United States. His many years of service to this textbook remain evident on every page and will continue for many editions to come.

Review:

"This is superb book. It covers a tremendous amount of material briefly and clearly without sacrificing complexity or compromising scholarly standards. Moreover, it's balanced; the author has no axe to grind, no partisan agenda he's seeking to further."

"Wilson has always had the gift of lucidity... I like the idea of 'Enduring Questions', as today's students seem to need the bottom line."

"Strengths: 1) Depth of coverage even though it is a brief version. The major topics with each chapter are covered well; 2) Breakdown of the chapters into subdivisions that enhance the main topic from within; 3) the blue boxes that include the definitions of major topics, words, events or other important information; and 4) the Enduring Questions with the 'Reconsidering the Enduring Questions' at the end of the chapter. These are excellent starter questions to get the class engaged at the beginning and throughout the course of the lecture and class."
