Review from previous edition 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. Politicalscientists in all fields will welcome this immensely valuable effort.
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
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
