The editors have assembled an extremely impressive list of scholars from law and political science - a veritable who's who in the field - and have produced a volume that defines an ambitious agenda for the study of law and politics for the next generation. John Ferejohn, Carolyn S. G. Munro Professor of Political Science, Stanford University I strongly recommend purchasing The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics ... The essays the editors have assassed not only review a solid base of knowledge but they also identify new puzzles to pursue and possibilities for collaboration ... For me, the bottom line is this. I am more excited about our field than I was before reading the handbook. I am anxious to get back to work on the problems the handbook addresses. I would strongly recommend purchasing it and using it in your classes. I surely will. Jeffrey K. Staton, Emory University, in Law and Politics Book Review
The study of law and politics is one of the foundation stones of the discipline of political science, and it has been one of the productive areas of cross-fertilization between the various subfields of political science and between political science and other cognate disciplines. This Handbook provides a comprehensive survey of the field of law and politics in all its diversity, ranging from such traditional subjects as theories of jurisprudence, constitutionalism, judicial politics and law-and-society to such re-emerging subjects as comparative judicial politics, international law, and democratization. The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics gathers together leading scholars in the field to assess key literatures shaping the discipline today and to help set the direction of research in the decade ahead. "This extraordinary series offers 'state of the art' assessments that instruct, engage,and provoke. Both synoptic and directive, the fine essays across these superbly edited volumes reflect the ambitions and diversity of political science.No one who is immersed in the discipline's controversies and possibilities should miss the intellectual stimulation and critical appraisal these works so powerfully provide.
" Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University. "The thoughtful essays in the Handbooks are far more than literature reviews. Scholars and students will find them to be an invaluable resource for many years to come." Morris P. Fiorina, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and Wendt Family Professor of Political Science, Stanford 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.
