Abstract

The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics (Oxford University Press), edited by Keith E. Whittington (Princeton University), R. Daniel Kelemen (Rutgers University) and Gregory A. Caldeira (Ohio State University), is part of the multi-volume Oxford Handbooks of Political Science. 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 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. Featuring 50 scholars and 45 chapters, The Oxford Handbook of Law and Politics gathers together leading scholars in the field to critical appraisals of the key issues shaping the discipline today and to help set the direction of research in the decade ahead.

Keywords: politics, political science, courts, policy, judicial politics, judicial process
