MEDIA REVIEWS
The Millennium Challenge Corporation uses Freedom House's quantitative Political Rights and Civil Liberties scores as indicators in our country selection process, and, additionally, MCC staff regularly makes use of Freedom House publications, especially the Countries at the Crossroads series. Few other resources provide comprehensive, comparable analyses of countries' commitment to good governance, progress reports, and recommendations that countries can use to advance their reform efforts. -- Ambassador John Danilovich, chief executive officer, Millennium Challenge Corporation
Countries at the Crossroads manages to achieve the best of both worlds. A precise, standardized measurement tool for civil liberties, rule of law, corruption, and accountability allows meaningful comparisons across countries and across time. At the same time, in-depth narratives put flesh on the bones and provide concrete prescriptions for reform. -- Jack Snyder, Robert and Renee Belfer Professor of International Relations, Columbia University
This well-organized, comprehensive reference from Freedom House furnishes in-depth analyses for 30 countries that are at ta crucial point in their political development. . . . This illuminating reference will be useful for both undergradute and graduate collections. Recommended. * CHOICE *
Very detailed analysis that complements Freedom House annual reports onFreedom of the World andFreedom of the Press. * Future Survey, July 2007 *
Countries at the Crossroads is an outstanding collection of in-depth, yet concise and accessible assessments of the state of democratic governance in countries that are politically fluid or strategically important. An invaluable supplement to Freedom in the World and an indispensable handbook for scholars and policymakers. -- Larry Diamond, Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University
