The Oxford Handbook of Political Theory (Oxford Handbooks of Political Science) by John S. Dryzek, Bonnie Honig, Anne Phillips (Editors)

Review
The contributors of these chapters are an impressive array of talants... To read their contributions is to learn of the edd and flow of current debates, discussions and conclusions of political theory understood most broadly... the editors have done great service to political theory with this stock taking and assessment, which is at once thorough, well thought out, systematic, creative and - at time - risk taking. It belongs on the shelves of all philosopher-monarchs. Michael Jackson, University of Sydney 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 Judging from the editors, contributors, and topics covered, the forthcoming Oxford Handbooks of Political Science will be a landmark series...This is a series that not only university libraries, but more specialized social science and political science libraries, will want to have on their shelves Robert O. Keohane, Professor of International Affairs, Princeton University 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 Under the general editorship of Robert E. Goodin, a large group of intellectually attractive authors has charted the entire field of political science in an unbiased multi-paradigmatic way. Minerva's owl would make a nice logo for this monumental collective work of the Oxford Handbooks: what moves us forward is looking back at what we know. Claus Offe, Professor of Political Science, Hertie School of Governance, Berlin and Institute for Social Science, Humboldt University, Berlin. This is a unique and impressive set of analyses about scholarship in political theory. It is comprehensive, as we would expect. Beyond that, it is remarkably creative in the way that Dryzek, Honig and Phillips have organized categories, and it includes much overdue reference to scholarship on non-Western and postcolonial thought. Iris Marion Young, Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago A paramount effort coordinated by Robert Goodin for Oxford University Press has produced an impressive set of ten volumes about the state of the discipline, the Oxford Handbook of Political Science, which has become an instant must.

"This is a unique and impressive set of analyses about scholarship in political theory. It is comprehensive, as we would expect. Beyond that, it is remarkably creative in the way that Dryzek, Honig and Phillips have organized categories, and it includes much overdue reference to scholarship on non-Western and postcolonial thought."--Iris Marion Young, Late Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago
