This series will provide important contributions on both established and new topics on the politics and political economy of developing countries. A particular priority is to give increased visibility to a dynamic and growing body of social science research that examines the political and social determinants of economic development, as well as the effects of different development models on political and social outcomes. The series will publish several different types of works, including 1) extended reference and review essays on the state of the art in enduring research traditions; 2) essays that set a new research agenda on emerging fields and point to future directions in empirics and theory; and 3) original empirically grounded and theoretically engaged research. Topics will cover a broad range of issues and areas including Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and post-communist countries (including the middle income countries of Eastern Europe, Russia, and China). The series is open to all methodologies. Bringing together diverse research strands and critically engaging broad, cross-regional policy and disciplinary debates, the series will be a valuable resource for scholars, students, and practitioners.
