About the Authors
  • This high-quality reference on significant research in Australian social sciences is divided into three main sections: economics, sociology and political science. Each section examines the significant research in the field. The volume views the research within the context of broader debates about the social sciences and the ways in which more recent institutional changes have altered how they are defined, taught and researched.

    • A quality compendium on research in Australian social sciences
    • Comprehensive - 37 chapters by acknowledged experts, covering economics, political science and sociology
