Summary

Always student friendly, The Challenge of Politics uses a unique normative approach, emphasizing politics as a humanizing endeavor that relies on values and judgment. The authors relate insights of classic political thinkers both to their modern counterparts and to the political dynamics of American, comparative, and international affairs. Student and instructor resources are available.

Riemer, Simon, and Romance have succeeded greatly in providing a text that is explicitly linked to political theory throughout it is well written, sophisticated, and comprehensive. Excerpt from a review of The Challenge of Politics, Second Edition in Journal of Political Science Education (Vol. 4, Issue 2, 2008).-Stephen Bird, Clarkson University, and Joshua C. Yesnowitz, Boston University

The Challenge of Politics is an absolutely ideal text for an introductory course. I have used several texts over the years and consider this text to be by far the best that I have used. The text begins with a thoughtful discussion of politics and political science. The text then examines the ethical, empirical and prudential aspects of politics and political science helping the students see the different approaches and components of political science. The text is clearly informed by the literature in political science, but the text is not littered with arcane jargon. In short, it is concise, comprehensive in its coverage, and current in its research.-Michael Coulter, Grove City College

The Challenge of Politics is an absolutely ideal text for an introductory course. I have used several texts over the years and consider this text to be by far the best that I have used. This textbook is full of good information for learning about the basics of politics. The book was in great shape for being a used textbook, great for the money; I will do business with you in the future.
