But on the bright side, the book is chalked full of literature citations that should be useful for the graduate comparativist and the main idea of the book to illustrate that rationality, culture, and structure each play an important role in the diverse subfield of comparative politics whether it be in ethic conflict, political economy, institutions, etc.
My one wish is that they would put in a literature cited section at the end of each chapter, rather than just in the bibliography at the end because they cite a lot of literature in each section and it can be difficult if one has to stop reading to check a citation or finish reading a lengthy chapter and then struggle to locate said citation within a textbook full of them.
Despite these complaints, the book provides a decent introduction to the field.
