About the Authors
  • In the social disciplines there is a growing movement to use disciplinary history as a means of accounting for the present status and possible futures of various modes of social and political inquiry. In this collection of essays, a number of political scientists take up the challenge of disciplinary history by exploring a range of themes and movements that have shaped academic political science today. These essays should be of interest to any student of the social disciplines who is interested in understanding both the development of modern political science and its current concerns.

    • Collection of essays by political scientists reflecting on the history of their discipline
    • A unique volume using a self-consciously historical approach to understanding the current contours of academic political science
    • A volume that complements a growing literature on the history of the social disciplines

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this book should be read by anyone interested in the history--present and future--of the social sciences generally. It exemplifies new maturity and sophistication in the telling and mining of the discipline's own checkered history. Furthering the promise of a reasoned discourse about the social sciences in America, it reflects the many dilemmas inherent in contemporary social and political inquiry." Journal of Interdisciplinary History
