The SAGE Handbook of Political Sociology offers a comprehensive and contemporary look at this evolving field of study. The focus is on political life itself and the chapters, written by a highly-respected and international team of authors, cover the core themes which need to be understood in order to study political life from a sociological perspective, or simply to understand the political world.
The two volumes are structured around five key areas:
PART 1: TRADITIONS AND PERSPECTIVES
PART 2: CORE CONCEPTS
PART 03: POLITICAL IDEOLOGIES AND MOVEMENTS
PART 04: TOPICS
PART 05: WORLD REGIONS
This future-oriented and cross-disciplinary handbook is a landmark text for students and scholars interested in the social investigation of politics.

A very useful reference book for sociologists and political theorists, the entries in this volume show an excellent sense of the historical development and inter-disciplinary study of key concepts and areas – mostly those that are considered central to political sociology, but with a new additions and some interesting surprises.
