'I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the OUP/ECPR team to edit this very important book series. It has been publishing the best work in the field for almost 30 years. I hope to identify new authors producing excellent social science, and I look forward to working with them to craft their projects into books that will have broad reach and deep impact on the field of comparative politics.'
Founded in 1990, the series is devoted to the comparative study of contemporary government and politics, with a specific interest in the comparative domestic politics of institutions and political actors. Global in scope, books in the series are characterised by a stress on comparative analysis and strong methodological rigour.
The series aims to publish cutting-edge, in-depth analyses on these topics, and to provide a forum for scholars to share their work on themes ranging from democracy, electoral reform, money and politics, parliaments, cabinets and coalitions, representation, political leaders and personalisation, party organisations and intra-party democracy, democratic linkage and public opinion.
Whatever the focus, the Series has ambitions to be at the forefront of scientific debates in the field. Titles are nominated regularly for awards, including various APSA prizes and the CPSA Prize in Comparative Politics.
