It is a great pleasure to announce that the University of Notre Dame has appointed Ruth Abbey editor in chief of the Review of Politics. Her term begins on January 1, 2018.

Abbey has been a professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame since 2005. But she began working for the Review years before. She has published several articles in the journal: one coauthored with Fredrick Appel, “Nietzsche and the Will to Politics,” in 1998, another entitled “Bricks and Stones” in 2008. In 2015 she contributed a piece on Charles Taylor, “How to Live Together in Difference,” for a roundtable she organized and edited on Mark Redhead's Democratic Theory for a Not So Liberal Era. Most recently, in our Fall 2017 issue she published a review essay, “On Friendship.” During all these years she has been one of our most conscientious manuscript reviewers, even while she served as book review editor from 2014 to 2016.

However, Abbey's experience editing and publishing extends far beyond the Review. She has published the single-authored monographs Nietzsche's Middle Period; Philosophy Now: Charles Taylor; and The Return of Feminist Liberalism, and is currently writing Human All Too Human: A Critical Introduction and Guide for Edinburgh University Press. She edited Feminist Interpretations of Rawls for the Penn State University Press series Re-Reading the Canon in 2013, and Contemporary Philosophy in Focus: Charles Taylor for Cambridge University Press in 2004. And she is currently editing a collection to essays entitled Cosmopolitan Civility: Global-Local Reflections in Honor of Fred Dallmayr.

Susan Collins will be continuing as book review editor, and Kelli Brown will continue managing internal communications with authors, reviewers, and the production team at Cambridge University Press. With Abbey at the helm, I thus leave the Review confident that it is in good hands. Among Abbey's many virtues, she is very technologically savvy. She will be able, therefore, to steer the journal safely through the rapidly changing world of publishing.

I would also like to take this occasion to thank Dennis Moran, our former executive editor; Peter Moody, our long-time book review editor; and my predecessors Walter Nicgorski and Donald Kommers, along with Ruth, Susan, and Kelli, for their steady, thoughtful advice and support over the last thirteen years.
