'A tribute to the vitality of European Political Science, this volume is a tour de force. The editors and contributors, representing the full diversity of the field, powerfully assert that a cohesive discipline has emerged to collectively grapple with the mounting challenges of the 21st century. A must-read for all who engage with political science inside and outside of Europe.'
— Amy Mazur, Washington State University
'An excellent collection of essays reinstilling the confidence that European political science, in its rich diversity, has the analytic range and capacity to make sense of the complex and often deeply troubling political times in which we find ourselves.'
— Colin Hay, Sciences Po Paris
'Each discipline needs regular stocktaking. To consider the past, to know where political science comes from and to explore the discipline’s own discourse helps us to understand how it is shaped today and where it might go in the future. This volume tells the fascinating story of five decades of the discipline’s continuity and change in Europe. It is a ‘must read‘ for political scientists, for political science students and for policy makers in Europe with a responsibility for the future of political science as an academic discipline.'
