However, over subsequent years I found it very useful for putting political scientist's and their thought in context, and for use in political science essays. For example, if you're studying Olson's theory of collective action this book provides you with a brief explanation of his theory (the logic of collective action), the 'movement' it formed part of (neo-pluralism) and the paradigm it was opposing (pluralism). Furthermore, I also found that Theories of the State was very quote worthy - great for essays!
In short then, too heavy for an introductory text - but very useful as a general Political Science reference work in later years.
