"'Must' reading for all those interested in comparative politics or in the study of development."—Dankwart A. Rustow, Journal of International Affairs

"This book, which first appeared in 1968, was one of the classics of late twentieth-century social science, a work that had enormous influence on the way people thought about development, both in academia and in the policy world. The breadth of knowledge about developing countries, as well as the analytical insight that Political Order brought to bear, was astonishing, and cemented Samuel Huntington's reputation as one of the foremost political scientists of his generation."—Francis Fukuyama, from the Foreword
