Overview

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 most 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.

G. Munro Professor of Political Science, Stanford University

"The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics provides an invaluable guide to the inter-relationship between these two disciplines. It brings together in a well-organized and systematic manner the rich literature on the various aspects of this subject. All lawyers interested in the relationship between law and politics will want to have a copy of this book in their collection. "—Paul Craig, Professor of English Law and Fellow of St John's College, Oxford 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, Harvard University.
