"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."
