The Review of Politics publishes articles primarily on political theory. We also publish historical and interpretive studies of public law, comparative politics, international relations, and public policy, as well as political readings of literary works.
An Important Message from our Editor:
The editorial team anticipates that it will be business as usual at ROP. We do not foresee any delay in processing manuscripts at our end. We can’t anticipate whether external reviewers will continue to be available amidst the current uncertainty. There might also be a delay in reviewing new books if there is a slow down in our capacity to physically mail books to reviewers. If book reviewers are willing to use e-books, that will help a lot. We will do all we can to keep things going as usual in these unusual times.
