The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics Summary

The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics by Keith E. Whittington

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.

The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics Reviews

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 *
