Political Science

Editor in Chief | Editorial Board | Articles and Contributors

Political science is the study of the struggle by humans to gain and use power and authority for useful or destructive reasons. Political scientists analyze this struggle within and among nations using a variety of methodological tools and theoretical concepts and in a variety of sub-disciplines and specialties. It is imperative that students, scholars and professionals stay abreast of new discoveries, new interpretations, and new theoretical ideas. The overlapping fields of practice that come together in the study of political science make it challenging to stay informed about every applicable area. The task is made more difficult because a great deal of this work has moved online with the most recent scholarship and research appearing in online databases. Rather than sifting through these ever-expanding mountains of information that may or may not yield relevant results, students and researchers alike can rely on Oxford Bibliographies in Political Science to offer a reliable, up-to-date, and authoritative guide to the best literature in the field. As Oxford Bibliographies in Political Science grows, it will reflect the impact on political science of major political transformations in the world and of methodological advances.
