Review “All of this is wonderful, exciting, imaginative, and generous.├é┬áHyperpolitics is a great service to many disciplines, not just political science. As an intellectual history of political science, this book is unequalled. This is a pioneering reinvention of the dictionary.”—Richard M. Valelly, Swarthmore College (Richard M. Valelly ) “By confronting the pervasive failure to teach innovative work with concepts, Hyperpolitics makes a stunning contribution. Calise and Lowi broaden our horizon by creating a new map of conceptual structure that will enlighten scholars and students, challenging them to extend it.”—David Collier, University of California, Berkeley (David Collier ) “When it takes two first-class authors fifteen years to produce a book, the book must be taken seriously. Hyperpolitics is a highly innovative and formidable instrument for handling and understanding concepts. I miss having had to miss it in my time.”—Giovanni Sartori, Columbia University (Giovanni Sartori ) “In Hyperpolitics, two esteemed political scientists combine a broad knowledge of the field and commitment to transparent, cumulative conceptual development with an elegant interface. The result is a work that is both simple to use for the novice and rich and sophisticated for the established scholar. Innovative and smart, Hyperpolitics will make a splendid contribution to conceptual development in comparative politics and to the training of students, as well.”—Edward Schatz, University of Toronto (Edward Schatz ) About the Author Mauro Calise is professor of political science at the University of Naples Federico II.
