"Overall this is a fine start for a work that encompasses such a vast number of insights and so much analysis. Watching the expansion of the knowledge base in future editions will be interesting. Index at end of the third volume. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (Choice, 1 July 2013)

"Political scientists, sociologists, as well as students in other academic disciplines should find this book of enormous value." (Library Journal, 1 April 2013)
