Drawing on the rich resources of the ten-volume series of The Oxford Handbooks of Political Science, this one-volume distillation provides a comprehensive overview of all the main branches of contemporary political science:political theory; political institutions; political behavior; comparative politics; international relations; political economy; law and politics; public policy; contextual political analysis; and political methodology.Sixty-seven of the top political scientists worldwide survey recent developments in those fields and provide penetrating introductions to exciting new fields of study.Following in the footsteps of the New Handbook of Political Science edited by Robert Goodin and Hans-Dieter Klingemann a decade before, this Oxford Handbook will become an indispensable guide to the scope and methods of political science as a whole.It will serve as the reference book of record for political scientists and for those following their work for years to come.

A concise and solid introduction to political science and its ten sub-disciplines. The assembly of scholars from leading US, European, and Australian universities and research centres provides the reader with diverse perspectives and awareness of current scholarship. Entries are heavily cited and provide a concise roadmap of key scholars, theories, and current developments within each area...Highly recommended. (CHOICE)Robert Goodin has put together a superb volume: truly a collection of the very best from the already outstanding chapters in the original ten volumes.The authors ― the most prominent and authoritative experts from all over the world ― provide not only a comprehensive and systematic assessment of what political science has already accomplished but also a guide to where the discipline should be heading in the future.Political scientists in all fields will welcome this immensely valuable effort. (Arend Lijphart, Research Professor Emeritus of Political Science Department of Political Science, University of California, San Diego)Anyone who wants to know the state of the art in political science and where the discipline is headed, but only consult one volume, need go no further than these authoritative essays by first rate contributors. (Carole Pateman, Research Professor School of European Studies, Cardiff University)Spanning all of the major substantive areas and approaches in modern political science, this blockbuster set is a must-have for scholars and students alike. Each volume is crafted by a distinguished set of editors who have assembled critical, comprehensive essays to survey accumulated knowledge and emerging issues in the study of politics. These volumes will help to shape the discipline for many years to come. (Theda Skocpol, Victor S. Thomas Professor of Government and Sociology, and Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University)
