About the Authors
  • Political sociology is a large and expanding field with many new developments and The New Handbook of Political Sociology supplies the knowledge necessary to keep up with this exciting field. Written by a distinguished group of leading scholars in sociology, this volume provides a survey of this vibrant and growing field in the new millennium. The handbook presents the field in six parts: theories of political sociology, the information and knowledge explosion, the state and political parties, civil society and citizenship, the varieties of state policies, and globalization and how it affects politics. Covering all subareas of the field with both theoretical orientations and empirical studies, it directly connects scholars with current research in the field. A total reconceptualization of the first edition, the new handbook features nine additional chapters and highlights the impact of the media and big data.

    • Covers all the subareas of political sociology with both theoretical orientations and a strong basis in empirical studies of many topics
    • Connects scholars with actual research being done on the subareas of sociology so that theory and research can be assessed together rather than simply relying on theory or critical endeavors
    • Focuses strongly on the new impact of political parties through articulation theories, showing the refocusing of political sociology on how political parties shape public opinion and the demands of various groups in society
