The Review of Politics publishes high-quality original research that advances scholarly debates in all areas of political theory. We welcome manuscripts on the history of political thought, analytical political theory, canonical political thought, contemporary political thought, comparative political thought, critical theory, or literature and political thought. While the quality of scholarship and clear contribution to progressing scholarly debates are the key criteria for inclusion, we also strive to publish cutting-edge research in a way that is maximally accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
We also have a substantial book review section that offers high-quality reviews of new books about political theory, philosophy, and intellectual history.
