In The Press

“This book review of ‘Experimental Political Science: Principles and Practices’ focuses on the methodological challenges faced by experimental political science. … For those who want to know what experimental political science is all about, for those who wonder about the methodological robustness of experimental results, for those who are still skeptical about the relevance of experimental knowledge, I strongly recommend the book.” (Antoinette Baujard, Social Choice and Welfare, Vol. 45, 2015)
