The Review of Politics publishes reviews of current scholarly books on political issues, broadly understood: works taking philosophical, historical, or empirical approaches, as well as books on public affairs. We do not normally review edited collections, second editions, or reprints. Authors or publishers who wish their books to be considered for review should have copies sent to:

Book Review Instructions
Decisions concerning which books will be reviewed and who should review them are made by the editorial staff, and the general policy is not to entertain unsolicited offers to review a particular work. Those wishing to be listed among potential book reviewers, however, should send a copy of their curriculum vitae and a brief outline of their interests to the address above, or by e-mail to ROP@nd.edu.
The Review of Politics is pleased to announce the appointment of Susan D. Collins as book review editor beginning July 1, 2016. Professor Collins joined the Department of Political Science at Notre Dame in fall 2013. She specializes in the study of the history of political thought with an emphasis on ancient political philosophy, but she is also a member of the constitutional studies program.
Her most recent book is a translation of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, with Robert Bartlett (Chicago 2011). She is also the author of Aristotle and the Rediscovery of Citizenship (Cambridge 2006), co-author and translator of Empire and the Ends of Politics: Plato’s “Menexenus” and Pericles’ Funeral Oration (Focus 1999), and co-editor of Action and Contemplation: Studies in the Moral and Political Thought of Aristotle (SUNY 1999).
She previously taught at the University of Houston in the Honors Program as well as the department of political science; and before that she was a fellow at the Liberty Fund. As a result, she has broad knowledge of a variety of works and approaches from different times and places.
