The Oxford Handbooks of Political Science is a ten-volume set of reference books offering authoritative and engaging critical overviews of the state of political science. This volume, The Oxford Handbook of Political Theory, provides comprehensive and critical coverage of the lively and contested field of political theory, and will help set the agenda for the field for years to come. Long recognized as one of the main branches of political science, political theory has in recent years burgeoned in many different directions. Forty-five chapters by distinguished political theorists look at the state of the field, where it has been in the recent past, and where it is likely to go in future. They examine political theory's edges as well as its core, the globalizing context of the field, and the challenges presented by social, economic, and technological changes.

"Judging from the editors, contributors, and topics covered, the forthcoming Oxford Handbooks of Political Science will be a landmark series. I was especially impressed by the range of the volume on political institutions - including international institutions as well as a whole variety of domestic ones. The contributors to this and other volumes are first-rate. 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
