"Each handbook takes an aspect of its discipline and unpacks it, explaining the key issues, the classic and contemporary debates on those issues, and setting the agenda for how those debates might evolve. Introductory and yet sophisticated, the handbooks offer authoritative and trustworthy guides to the scholarship that defines the field." -From Oxford Handbooks Online
The Oxford Handbooks of Political Science are anthologies (i.e., collections of essays). Contributors are political scientists and faculty in related disciplines.
