This book gathers together leading scholars in the field to assess key literatures shaping the discipline today and to help set the direction of research in the decade ahead. The study of law and politics is one of the foundation stones of the discipline of political science, and it has been one of the most productive areas of cross-fertilization between the various subfields of political science and between political science and other cognate disciplines. The book provides a comprehensive survey of the field of law and politics in all its diversity, ranging from such traditional subjects as theories of jurisprudence, constitutionalism, judicial politics, and law and society, to such re-emerging subjects as comparative judicial politics, international law, and democratization.

Keywords: political science; jurisprudence; constitutionalism; judicial politics; law and society; comparative judicial politics; international law; democratization; law; politics
