Book Cover
The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Political Sociology

The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Political Sociology is a complete reference guide, reflecting the scope and quality of the discipline, and highlighting emerging topics in the field.

The essays, from an international, interdisciplinary group of leading scholars, build on each other, each including concepts, theories and case studies to investigate a topic and provide an overview of scholarship in the field. The Companion examines the full range of contributions to political sociology as never before.

The Companion has been completely revised and expanded, to reflect advances in conceptual frameworks, and to deal in greater depth with topics related to globalization, social movements, and citizenship. New chapters reflect conceptual advances in the field, taking full account of developments over the last decade.

Sociologists take various positions on the roots and consequences of political action, and the interdisciplinary nature of their debates make this an invaluable entry point into mapping and evaluating contemporary politics.

Challenging in content, the volume is nevertheless accessible, containing abstracts for each chapter, further reading lists, and a consolidated bibliography, making this both an excellent guide and complete reference for students and scholars.
