    Review quote
    "An excellent piece of work, well-organized, focused, and well-written. The maps selected for inclusion are excellent. I will undoubtedly use this text, add it to my personal library, and recommend it to colleagues." --Gerald R. Webster, Associate Professor of Geography, The University of Alabama "Why wasn't this book out when I needed it last quarter? Political geography has long needed a comprehensive treatment of government and politics (including attitudes about foreign policy) focussed within the nation. The book nicely weaves together politics, history and geography. And while it may be parochial, students and faculty will greatly appreciate a book devoted to the United States, to settings and issues with which they can identify." --Richard Morrill, University of Washington.
