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 a 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."
"Clarity is the greatest strength of this book. Political nomenclature is explained in a manner that helps students relate the content to their every day lives."
"I like the historically grounded character of the text's treatment."
