The Oxford Handbooks of Political Science is a ten volume set of reference books offering authoritative and engaging critical overviews of all the main branches of political science. POLITICAL INSTITUTIONS R. A. W. Rhodes, Sarah A. Binder & Bert A. Rockman.

This volume is the successor of that work, valuable on its own merits.

Drawing on the rich resources of the ten-volume series of The Oxford Handbooks of Political Science, this one-volume distillation provides a comprehensive overview of all the main branches of contemporary political science: political theory; political institutions; political behavior; comparative politics; international relations; political economy; law and politics; public policy; contextual political analysis; and political methodology. Sixty-seven of the top political scientists worldwide survey recent developments in those fields and provide penetrating introductions to exciting new fields of study. Following in the footsteps of the New Handbook of Political Science edited by Robert Goodin and Hans-Dieter Klingemann a decade before, this Oxford Handbook of Political Science will become an indispensable guide to the scope and methods of political science as a whole. It will serve as the reference book of record for political scientists and for those following their work for years to come.
  • In 1996, Oxford University Press published "A New Handbook of Political Science," edited by Robert Goodin and Hans-Dieter Klingemann. This volume is the successor of that work, valuable on its own merits.

    A disciplinary handbook should give readers a sense of research and theory in the various areas of that discipline. First, the structure of the volume: there is a leisurely and solid introduction to the volume by Goodin; the second section features a major area within political science--political theory; Part III explores political institutions; Part IV examines law and politics; Part V examines political behavior; Part VI considers a rather exotic aspect of political science--contextual political analysis (not a standard field of the discipline, but an arena worth looking at); Part VII focuses on comparative politics; Part VIII features international relations; Part IX looks at political economy; Part X considers public policy; Part XI elaborates upon political methodology. There are a series of useful appendices to close out the volume.

    The book closes out on page 1186. This book is not a quick read. It is meant as a handbook, a guide for professionals in the area. Some of the chapters would be tough going for a more general audience.

    For graduate students in political science and for professionals in the area, this provides an overall perspective on the contours of the discipline.

  • This book is not well-suited to the Kindle format and it's much too expensive to be done as poorly as it is. I wasn't far into it when they made a reference to a list of books in Appendix 1.1. But there's no hyperlink to the appendix. So thinking that appendices are usually at the end of a book, I tried looking there. This is incredibly tedious in a Kindle format, especially since if you didn't bookmark the page you left, you need several clicks of the "back" button. And the link to the appendix in question also isn't in the TOC on the sidebar.

    So I tried using the search function, which did find it. The actual table (a list of canonical books) was not enetered as text, but as a highly pixelated jpeg that was very nearly illegible. Far worse, the table was broken into two jpegs, one with the top half of the table (including the column headings) and one with the bottom "overflow" bits of the long columns.

    I had to return this book. It should be better. This is by far my biggest and most consistent complaint with Kindle books: they need to fix the resolution of image files. For instance, I've seen PDFs where you can zoom in to 1,000x with resolution all the way down. They need to add a much higher degree of resolution so that you can get what you need by zooming in this way. While it would increase the size of files a bit, it would make one of the biggest weaknesses of the e-format one of the biggest strengths; theoretically, getting high res images you can zoom in for clarity should make the e-format better than paper books, but so far it's frequently worse.

    The other as mentioned is hyperlinks. Again, skipping around could in theory be far easier if the included a series of hyperlinks. When these are poorly done (in this example, Appendix 1.1 had a link to the table which was right there, but the mention several pages earlier of the Appendix had no link to it), it changes a strength to a weakness.

    If you're going to charge nearly as much for the Kindle version as for a paper book, some of what you save on publishing and distribution costs needs to be invested in these functions peculiar to the e-book.

  • This is real politics theory book, I like it

  • I just bought this one from a bookstore in Amsterdam. Obviously, with a book weighing in over 1200 pages, I haven't read every article yet. But the articles I have read are state-of-the-art: they take you right up to all current debates in political science, from political philosophy to methodology to postmodernism and it's (supposed) opponents.

    The articles are though-provoking, even if, or especially if, you don't agree with every author. Robert Goodin has truly succeeded in getting together a reasonably non-partisan overview of the entire field.

    This is a book that can last a lifetime and surely worth buying for any political scientist. And to think, this is just the first of a total of eleven of these handbooks, with the other ten focussing on a specific area within political science. I know what I want for my birthday....

  • The Philosophy of Governance: AAA- Non-Fiction- very good book, very informative
