'Addressing key challenges which confront political analysis in making sense of contemporary politics, these astute and authoritative reflections belong to the best traditions of an engaged, open and critical political science.' - Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge 'This excellent volume strikes a pitch-perfect balance between new directions and established approaches and methods. Its maturity shows that political science has come a long way and has much still to contribute. I'm very impressed - and look forward to recommending it to my students.' - Craig Parsons, University of Oregon '[A]n excellent overview…thoughtful… adept and prescient… [this] volume is likely to become one of the key references for assessing the state of the art in political science at the beginning of the twenty-first century.' – Emilian Kavalski, Political Studies Review
