From the Publisher"Putting together a reader or companion in the field of political sociology is notoriously difficult. Kate Nash and Alan Scott have done a splendid job in producing a collection that is comprehensive, coherent, and up-to-date. The quality of the contributions is outstanding."
—Krishan Kumar, University of Virginia
"An enormously comprehensive and pluralistic overview of contemporary debates in the field of political sociology. Though nobody will agree with all the contributors, everybody in the field will learn a lot from this stimulating volume."
—Hans Joas, Freie Universität, Berlin
"The parameters of politics are open and contested as never before. Nash and Scott's collection effectively captures the way contemporary social forces have disrupted older political assumptions. It fulfils the vital task of intellectual preparation for shaping new political agendas in a globalized and fragmented world."
—Martin Albrow, University of Surrey Roehampton
"The book's strong points would appear to be its catholic outlook in the best sense of the term, and its international, mainly British and European cast of established authors ..." (Canadian Journal of Sociology Online)
