      Summary
      • '...a welcome addition to the already available introductory works on Islam. The chapters of the book combine depth of analysis and erudition on a wide range of subjects. Thus in a single volume one finds several superbly written papers not only on the foundations of Islam and the manifestations of Islamic culture but also on issues which are at the centre of contemporary debates among Muslims such as multiculturalism, social justice, democracy and diversity. As a sourcebook this work is equally useful for students, academicians and general readers' - Zafar Ishaq Ansari, Director, Islamic Research Institute, International Islamic University Islamic Studies is at a critical moment in its history. It seeks both to maintain its rich history and to engage with other - sometimes dominant - cultural and political studies. This tension is producing complex changes in both the theory and the practice of Islamic Studies. This timely and stimulating Handbook, edited by world-class experts in the field, provides a comprehensive guide to Islamic Studies today. It examines the main issues in the field and explores the key debates. It provides readers with an indispensable, balanced guide to the roots of Islam and the challenges it faces in the twenty-first century. The Handbook includes discussions of: - Islam as a community of discourse and a global system - Islam, diaspora and multiculturalism - The Qu'ran today - Islam as a moral and judicial system - Islam and politics - Islam and culture - Diversities and Islam Concise, level-headed and penetrating, this collection will be of interest to anyone who studies contemporary Islam. It brings together an unparalleled collection of international scholars who illuminate some of the most urgent and complex issues in the world today.

      Summary
      • The original Handbook of Public Administration was a landmark publication, the first to provide a comprehensive and authoritative survey of the discipline. The eagerly-awaited new edition of this seminal international handbook continues to provide a complete review and guide to past and present knowledge in this essential field of inquiry. Assembling an outstanding team of scholars from around the world, the second edition explores the current state-of-the-art in academic thinking and the current structures and processes for the administration of public policy. The second edition has been fully revised and updated, with new chapters that reflect emerging issues and changes within the public sector: - Identifying the Antecedents in Public Performance - Bureaucratic Politics - Strategy Structure and Policy Dynamics - Comparative Administrative Reform - Administrative Ethics - Accountability through Market and Social Instruments - Federalism and intergovernmental coordination. A dominant theme throughout the handbook is a critical reflection on the utility of scholarly theory and the extent to which government practices inform the development of this theory. To this end it serves as an essential guide for both the practice of public administration today and its on-going development as an academic discipline. The SAGE Handbook of Public Administration remains indispensable to the teaching, study and practice of public administration for students, academics and professionals everywhere.
      • Review: 'Guy Peters and Jon Pierre are rightly regarded as leading figures in the area, but even that does not guarantee the striking breadth reflected in the company of contributors: this quality may be because the 14 separate areas covered in the volume are 'franchised' to separate expert (and geographically scattered) 'part editors' to coordinate and discuss entries. There is in consequence a similarly striking breath to the field reviewed. The title is somewhat 'retro' as the intellectual tradition is again reclaimed from policymaking, public sector management and other competing perspectives that have emerged. But while the label may be traditional, the content undermines any negatives associations that implies' - Grant Jordan Emeritus Professor of Politics, the University of Aberdeen 'If you are interested in a comprehensive yet compact and accessible account of current scholarly work on public sector organizations, this is the volume to have at hand. For this Handbook is not only a masterly and authoritatively selected collection of brilliant contributions, it also serves - interdisciplinary and comparative in outlook as it is - as a much needed cross-fertilizer between subfields of the public administration community' - Eckhard Schroeter Professor of Administrative Sciences, Zeppelin University 'Guy Peters and Jon Pierre and their colleagues have made an already essential handbook even more essential for students of public administration. New chapters on subjects such as administrative history, bureaucratic politics, representative bureaucracy, and intergovernmental relations add to the other excellent pieces to make for a magnificently comprehensive volume. Anyone interested in the administration of the contemporary state will want to read this volume and to have a copy of it at hand' - Joel Aberbach Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Public Policy, UCLA

      • Review: "The volume is unique...it has the character of an international collaboration focused on concepts and issues. The authors go beyond slogans or accepted truisms to grapple with issues that are contested but benefit from being addressed from different viewpoints. I commend the volume to a wide range of readers for its breadth of vision and success in moving the field forward."

      Summary
      • "The SAGE Handbook of Social Research Methods" is a must for every social-science researcher. It charts the new and evolving terrain of social research methodology, covering qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods in one volume. The Handbook includes chapters on each phase of the research process: research design, methods of data collection, and the processes of analyzing and interpreting data. The volume maintains that there is much more to research than learning skills and techniques; methodology involves the fit between theory, research questions research design and analysis.The book also includes several chapters that describe historical and current directions in social research, debating crucial subjects such as qualitative versus quantitative paradigms, how to judge the credibility of types of research, and the increasingly topical issue of research ethics. The Handbook serves as an invaluable resource for approaching research with an open mind. This volume maps the field of social research methods using an approach that will prove valuable for both students and researchers.

      Summary
      • "The SAGE Handbook of Environmental Change" is an extensive survey of the interdisciplinary science of environmental change, including recent debates on climate change and the full range of other natural and anthropogenic changes affecting the Earth-ocean-atmosphere system in the past, present and future. It examines the historic importance, present status and future prospects of the field over two volumes. With more than 40 chapters, the books situate the defining characteristics and key paradigms within a state-of-the-art review of the field, including its changing nature and diversity of approaches, evidence base, key theoretical arguments, resonances with other disciplines and relationships between theory, research and practice. Opening with a detailed, contextualizing essay by the editors, the work is arranged into six parts: Part One: Approaches to Understanding Environmental Change; Part Two: Evidence of Environmental Change and the Geo-ecological Response; Part Three: Causes, Mechanisms and Dynamics of Environmental Change; Part Four: Key Issues of Human-induced Environmental Changes and Their Impacts; Part Five: Patterns, Processes and Impacts of Environmental Change at the Regional Scale; and, Part Six: Responses of People to Environmental Change and Implications for Society.

      Summary
      • "Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways." - Peter Dicken, University of Manchester "Stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre." - Sallie A. Marston, University of Arizona "Captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit...This is a stand-out among handbooks!" - Lily Kong, National University of Singapore "This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography's character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns." - Alexander B. Murphy, University of Oregon "This SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography ...essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world." - Eric Sheppard, UCLA Published in association with the journal Progress in Human Geography, edited and written by the principal scholars in the discipline, this Handbook demonstrates the difference that thinking about the world geographically makes. Each section considers how human geography shapes the world, interrogates it, and intervenes in it. It includes a major retrospective and prospective introductory essay, with three substantive sections on: * Imagining Human Geographies * Practising Human Geographies * Living Human Geographies The Handbook also has an innovative multimedia component of conversations about key issues in human geography -- as well as an overview of human geography from the Editors. A key reference for any scholar interested in questions about what difference it makes to think spatially or geographically about the world, this Handbook is a rich and textured statement about the geographical imagination.
      • Review: This wonderfully unconventional book demonstrates human geography's character and significance not by marching through traditional themes, but by presenting a set of geographical essays on basic ideas, practices, and concerns. The result is a set of reflections that highlights the richness and insight of contemporary human geographical thinking. The book challenges readers to think in new ways and to recognize the sophistication, reach, and possibility of human geographic inquiry. -- Alexander B. Murphy Superb! How refreshing to see a Handbook that eschews convention and explores the richness and diversity of the geographical imagination in such stimulating and challenging ways. Full of surprises and unexpected diversions. It truly epitomises 'progress' in human geography. -- Peter Dicken While geography as a discipline has recently experienced a proliferation of handbooks, compendia, dictionaries and encyclopedias, the Handbook of Human Geography stands out as an innovative and exciting contribution that exceeds the genre. Collected here are not the usual broad overviews, but a more penetrating set of pieces that treat not so much the "what" of human geography but the "how"; that is, it asks the reader to deliberate on the key practices in which human geographers are engaged and their central relevance not only to comprehend but also to intervene in and transform worlds. -- Sallie A. Marston This will be an incredibly useful resource for all those interested in what it means to imagine, think and act geographically. The Handbook captures wonderfully the richness and complexity of the worlds that human beings inhabit, highlighting the significance of geography in contributing to an understanding of these worlds and in shaping everyday practice. At the same time, the editors and authors emphasise and explore the relations between human geography and other disciplines and invite debates on these boundaries. All readers, whatever their disciplinary backgrounds, will find much to stimulate their thinking, and will appreciate the breadth of insight. This is a stand-out among handbooks! -- Lily Kong, Professor of Geography "Notwithstanding the flood of handbooks and companions that has beset the discipline, this SAGE Handbook stands out for its capacity to provoke the reader to think anew about human geography. Its focus--on keywords, rather than the usual sub-disciplinary categories; on thinking and acting geographically, rather than on bounding a discipline; on engaging across the breadth of human geography, within not just between contributions; and on praxis, in ways that exceed the conventional academic predilections-has generated essays that offer some profoundly original insights into what it means to engage geographically with the world." -- Eric Sheppard

      Summary
      • Over the past twenty years research on the evolving relationship between GIS and Society has been expanding into a wide variety of topical areas, becoming in the process an increasingly challenging and multifaceted endeavour. The SAGE Handbook of GIS and Society is a retrospective and prospective overview of GIS and Society research that provides an expansive and critical assessment of work in that field. Emphasizing the theoretical, methodological and substantive diversity within GIS and Society research, the book highlights the distinctiveness and intellectual coherence of the subject as a field of study, while also examining its resonances with and between key themes, and among disciplines ranging from geography and computer science to sociology, anthropology, and the health and environmental sciences. Comprising 27 chapters, often with an international focus, the book is organized into six sections: * Foundations of Geographic Information and Society * Geographical Information and Modern Life * Alternative Representations of Geographic Information and Society * Organizations and Institutions * Participation and Community Issues * Value, Fairness, and Privacy Aimed at academics, researchers, postgraduates, and GIS practitioners, this Handbook will be the basic reference for any inquiry applying Geographical Information Science to societal issues.
      • Review: The wide ranging contributions to this very important volume demonstrate how success in using GIS to understand society is intimately linked to society's understanding of GIS. Tim Nyerges, Helen Couclelis and Bob McMaster have created the definitive guide to a technology that succeeds or fails depending upon our ability to accommodate societal context and structures. This handbook is lucid, integrative, comprehensive and, above all, prescient in its interpretation of GIS implementation as a societal process. -- Paul Longley This is truly a handbook - a book you will want to keep on hand for frequent reference and to which GIS professors should direct students entering our field... Selection of a few of the chapters for individual attention is difficult because each one contributes meaningfully to the overall message of this volume. The SAGE Handbook of GIS and Society is an important collection of articles that will set the tone for the next two decades of discourse and research about GIS and society. -- Journal of Geographical Analysis From a broader perspective, the various approaches, topics and applications presented in the book effectively clarify how the spatial dimension helps us to understand social phenomena as a reflection of social relations but also as an integral component of those relations. Its chapters illustrate how geospatial technologies mediate between space and society while shedding light on classic debates conducted in social theory and human geography about the spatial dimension's role in social processes. I highly recommend this book to students, scholars and the general public. -- Itzhak Omer The editors have assembled an admirable set of contributions which demonstrate the use of geospatial technologies in a wide range of application areas and have drawn on these case studies to highlight approaches that should contribute to addressing such concerns and thus help meet such laudable (if ambitious) aspirations. -- Gary Higgs

      Summary
      • "The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition", the first volume of the paperback versions of the "The SAGE Handbook of Qualitative Research, Third Edition", takes a look at the field from a broadly theoretical perspective, and is composed of the Handbook's Parts I ("Locating the Field), II ("Major Paradigms and Perspectives"), and VI ("The Future of Qualitative Research"). "The Landscape of Qualitative Research, Third Edition" attempts to put the field of qualitative research in context. Part I provides background on the field, starting with history, then action research and the academy, and the politics and ethics of qualitative research. Part II isolates what we regard as the major historical and contemporary paradigms now structuring and influencing qualitative research in the human disciplines.The chapters move from competing paradigms (positivist, post positivist, constructivist, critical theory) to specific interpretive perspectives, feminisms, racialized discourses, cultural studies, sexualities, and queer theory. Part III considers the future of qualitative research.This edition contains a new Reader's Guide prepared by the editors that helps students and researchers navigate through the chapters, locating the different methodologies, methods, techniques, issues, and theories relevant to their work. It presents an abbreviated Glossary of terms that offer students and researchers a ready resource to help decode the language of qualitative research. It offers recommended Readings that provide readers with additional sources on specific topic areas linked to their research. This text is designed for graduate students taking classes in social research methods and qualitative methods as well as researchers throughout the social sciences and in some fields within the humanities.

      Summary
      • "The Sage Handbook of Organizational Behaviour" is a fine addition to past works of reference in the field, edited by two prominent scholars who are internationally known. Its approach is both critical and original in many incisive ways, aspiring to a cutting-edge coverage of the core and periphery of OB. Many of the chapter authors stick their necks out and avoid the more obvious, conventional expositions of their topic. It covers a wide range of topics of potential use to both undergraduate and postgraduate students of the subject, as well as academics, researchers and practitioners. It will be of particular interest to those on MBA and DBA courses. 'It can be strongly recommended as an essential faculty library purchase, as well as a useful tool for individuals interested in having such a guide to the subject at hand' - Professor Malcolm Warner, Emeritus Fellow, Wolfson College and Judge Business School, University of Cambridge. 'This important new Handbook brings together for the first time a collection of major contributions on macro-organizational behaviour. This area of study is concerned with the ways in which the people who inhabit organizations make sense of their situations, contributing to the distinctive character of those organizations through their actions and struggles. The conventional literature, artificially divided between micro organizational behaviour and organization theory, has under-explored this obvious conjunction between people and organizations'. 'Stewart Clegg and Cary Cooper perform a great service in helping to make good the deficiency' - John Child, Professor of Commerce, Birmingham Business School. 'Thorough and comprehensive. Thoughtful critique and new insights' - Chris Argyris, James B. Conant Professor, Emeritus, Harvard University. In this second volume of "The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Behavior", the focus is on macro-organizational behavior, revealing ways in which the person and group affect the organization. Chapters are written by eminent and upcoming scholars in the field, each presenting on the major issues in organizational behavior as seen with a macro-lens. The Handbook is divided into three parts, the first introducing and framing the field; the second part considering the various organizational processes involved, including learning, teamwork, identity and power, among others, while finally Part Three introduces organizing on a macro-scale, covering topics such as organizational change, design governance and globalization. "The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Behavior: Macro Approaches" is an essential resource for researchers and students across management and organization studies.

      Summary
      • The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Research Methods provides a rich resource for organizational researchers, locating the technical aspects of organizational research in the wider context of the relevant personal, epistemological, theoretical, historical, ethical, and political issues. Buchanan & Bryman have gathered together many of the world's leading writers on theory, method and analysis in organizational research and have made this the most comprehensive and cutting-edge volume in this ever-growing field. The handbook aims to: - Provide a comprehensive critical review of contemporary issues, debates, field practice, and trends across the domain of organizational research; - Locate current thinking, debates, and methods in the history of organizational research; - Identify trends, theories, and issues which have the potential to shape the underpinning epistemologies, theories and methodologies of future organizational research; - Explore strategies for bridging the gap between researchers and those who are in a position to act on research findings to influence organizational practice The SAGE Handbook of Organizational Research Methods provides an impressively comprehensive critical review of contemporary issues, debates and trends across the domain of organizational research. It will be an indispensible reference work for all organizational researchers.

      Summary
      • "A treasure trove for sociolinguistic researchers and students alike. Edited by three leading sociolinguists, the 39 chapters cover a wealth of valuable material...And the cast list reads like a veritable Who's Who of sociolinguistics, with a refreshing number of younger scholars included along with more familiar, well-established names...This is a book that I will reach for often, both for research and teaching purposes. I will recommend it to my postgraduate students, and many of the chapters will provide excellent material for discussion in our advanced undergraduate sociolinguistics course." - Janet Holmes, Discourse Studies "The best, the most complete and the most integrated handbook of sociolinguistics of the past decade." - Joshua A. Fishman, NYU and Stanford University This Handbook answers a long-standing need for an up-to-date, comprehensive, international, in-depth critical survey of the history, trajectory, data, results and key figures involved in sociolinguistics. It consists of six inter-linked sections: * The History of Sociolinguistics * Sociolinguistics and Social Theory * Language, Variation and Change * Interaction * Multilingualism and Contact * Applications The result is a work of unprecedented coverage and insight. It is all here, from the foundational contributions to the field to the impact of new media, new technologies of communication, globalization, trans-border fluidities and agendas of research. The book will quickly be recognized as a benchmark in the field. It will provide a basis for reckoning its origins and pathways of development as well as an authoritative account of the central debates and research issues of today.
      • Review: A superb volume that weaves together the complex threads of sociological theory, linguistic analysis and practical application that characterise this important and influential field. The contributions offer a range and depth of coverage that is not found elsewhere. Highly recommended for all serious students of the social dimensions of language Ian Hutchby Professor of Sociology, University of Leicester The best, the most complete and the most integrated handbook of sociolinguistics of the past decade. It is a collection well worth having, returning to again and again and constantly keeping within easy reach for frequent reference on the part of students and faculty alike Joshua A. Fishman Emeritus Professor (Yeshiva University), NYU and Stanford University Starting with the people, ideas and research that mark the genesis of sociolinguistics, this handbook takes us through its theoretical, methodological and empirical development over the last half century into the wide spectrum of work it now encompasses. It is a tough challenge to do justice to such breadth and depth in one publication, but the editors have succeeded in compiling an impressive, structured collection of chapters covering a well-chosen range of key topics in sociolinguistics, and expertly written by leading sociolinguists. This will be an important and rewarding book for all those studying the social aspects of language Peter Garrett Centre for Language and Communication Research, Cardiff University This book is a treasure trove for sociolinguistic researchers and students alike. Edited by three leading sociolinguists, the 39 chapters cover a wealth of valuable material which includes accounts of the work of the founding figures of sociolinguistics, coverage of major theoretical approaches and sociolinguistic concepts, as well as consideration of some of the applications of sociolinguistics. And the cast list reads like a veritable Who's Who of sociolinguistics, with a refreshing number of younger scholars included along with more familiar, well-established names. The geographical spread is also good, with a number of sociolinguists from outside Europe and the USA, and sociolinguistic research which extends beyond the anglophone world...This is a book that I will reach for often, both for research and teaching purposes. I will recommend it to my postgraduate students, and many of the chapters will provide excellent material for discussion in our advanced undergraduate sociolinguistics course Janet Holmes Discourse Studies The Sage Handbook of Sociolinguistics - edited by three well-known researchers in the field of sociolinguistics: Ruth Wodak, Barbara Johnstone and Paul Kerswill - is a comprehensive volume on the state of sociolinguistic research today... The intended audience appears to be higher-level students and researchers. The style of most of the papers was accessible and did not require too much background knowledge. Many of the papers were excellent introductions to a particular facet of sociolinguistic research... Papers from the volume would... make good supplementary reading at an undergraduate level, and the volume should be considered essential reading for any graduate student embarking on sociolinguistic research.

      • The SAGE Handbook of Human Resource Management brings together contributions from leading international scholars in an influential collection that combines both global and interdisciplinary perspectives. An indispensable resource for advanced students and researchers in the field, the handbook focuses on familiarising the reader with the fundamentals of applied human resource management whilst contextualizing practice within wider theoretical considerations.

      • Review: "This is a must-read for everyone in the field of human resource management. Wilkinson, Bacon, Redman and Snell have done an excellent job of conceptualizing the field of HRM and assembled an outstanding international cast of chapter authors. The four parts of the Handbook cover virtually all aspects of HRM: from micro to macro views, from private to public sector, from strategic to historical perspectives, and from the class functions to the contemporary issues." -- Randall S.

      Summary
      • Social Research is a bourgeoning field. Of course it has many traditions and approaches, but there is a high premium upon thinking differently and thinking anew because social life is never static or wholly predictable. This Handbook, edited by internationally recognized scholars in the field, provides a comprehensive, pitch perfect critical assessment of the field. The main features of the Handbook are: - clear organization into 4 parts dealing with The Social Context of Research; Design and Data Collection; Integrating The Analysis of New Data Types; Sampling, Inference and Measurement - clear, cutting edge chapters on Objectivity; Effects; Organizing Social Research; Correspondence Analysis; Grounded Theory; Conversational Surveys; Mixed Methods; Regression Analysis; Optimal Matching Analysis; GIS Analysis; Quantitative Narrative Analysis; Longitudinal Studies; Equation Modelling - brings together a glittering assembly of the key figures working in the field of Methods today. - demonstrates the continuities and productive tensions between classical traditions and real world research today. The result is a superbly organized text which will be required reading for anyone interested in the routes and future of social research. It is an unparalleled teaching resource and a 'must have' for serious social researchers
      • Review: This book speaks to researchers across the social sciences, irrespective of their methodological persuasion. It brings fresh new perspectives to some of the core concerns of social science research methods; it challenges conventions and accepted wisdoms and provides pointers to an exciting future. The editors have produced a collection of papers that bring together some of the most original and innovative thinking about research methods. The chapters run the gamut of the research process whilst moving seamlessly across methodological boundaries. The book provides new ways of thinking about research and new ways of doing research, providing the reader with valuable pointers to their own research. -- Angela Dale This is a wonderful collection of interesting, novel and practically useful discussions of a wide variety of methodological topics in the social sciences. -- Harold Kincaid

      Summary
      • This handbook presents and critiques predominant and emergent traditions of Educational Action Research internationally. Now a prominent methodology, Educational Action Research is well suited to exploring, developing and sustaining change processes both in classrooms and whole organisations such as schools, Departments of Education, and many segments of universities. The handbook contains theoretical and practical based chapters by highly respected scholars whose work has been seminal in building knowledge and expertise in the field. It also contains chapters exemplifying the work of prominent practitioner and community groups working outside universities. The Editors provide an introduction and conclusion, as well as an opening chapter which charts the historical development of action research and provides an analysis of its underlying theories. The handbook is organized into four sections, each beginning with a short introduction: - Action research methodology: diversity of rationales and practices - Professional: Knowledge production, staff development, and the status of educators - Personal: Self-awareness, development and identity - Political: Popular knowledge, difference, and frameworks for change This is a key resource for scholars and graduate students at doctors and masters levels, as well as school leaders and administrators. Susan Noffke is Associate Professor of Curriculum & Instruction at the University of Illinois - Urbana/Champaign and co-editor with R.B. Stevenson of Educational Action Research (Teachers College Press, 1995). She taught at the primary school level for a decade, and has led masters and doctoral level courses in action research for the past 20 years. She continues to work with many collaborative projects with schools and school districts. Bridget Somekh is Professor of Educational Research at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. She is a founder editor of the Educational Action Research journal and has been a co-ordinator of the Collaborative Action Research Network (CARN) for many years. She is co-editor of Research Methods in the Social Sciences (SAGE: 2005) and author of Action Research: a Methodology for Change and Development (Open University Press: 2006).

      Summary
      • The original Handbook of International Relations was the first authoritative and comprehensive survey of the field of international relations. In this eagerly-awaited new edition, the Editors have once again drawn together a team of the world's leading scholars of international relations to provide a state-of-the-art review and indispensable guide to the field, ensuring its position as the pre-eminent volume of its kind. The second edition has been expanded to 33 chapters and fully revised, with new chapters on the following contemporary topics: - Normative Theory in IR - Critical Theories and Poststructuralism - Efforts at Theoretical Synthesis in IR: Possibilities and Limits - International Law and International Relations - Transnational Diffusion: Norms, Ideas and Policies - Comparative Regionalism - Nationalism and Ethnicity - Geopolitics in the 21st Century - Terrorism and International Relations - Religion and International Politics - International Migration A genuinely international undertaking, the handbook reviews the many historical, philosophical, analytical and normative roots to the discipline and the key contemporary topics of research and debate today. The Handbook of International Relations remains an essential benchmark publication for all advanced undergraduates, graduate students and academics in politics and international relations.
      • Review: This is not so much a 'handbook', more a brilliantly conceived and wonderfully designed piece of scholarship that makes a major contribution of its own to the field of IR. Each of the thirty three individual essays does exactly what the editors must have hoped for - provide a thoroughgoing guide to nearly every conceivable topic of interest to the student of international politics. A must buy for libraries and a first-to-go-to reference point for scholars. An outstanding achievement Professor Michael Cox London School of Economics The vastly changed, second edition of "The Handbook" extends its run as the most authoritative and convenient source for a comprehensive and sophisticated overview of a vibrant field of scholarship. The 33 chapters are highly informative and up-to-date, and authored by a distinguished and diverse group of international scholars. For an overview and as a reference this is a not-to-be-missed volume that all students of international relations will want to add to their personal library Peter Katzenstein Professor of International Studies, Cornell University When incredible uncertainty and sheer unpredictability of international relations as witnessed at the dawn of the twentieth-first century often lead actors to get scared and analysts to procrastinate, this thoroughly edited volume gives a reliable guidance to thinking and action to both analysts and actors with its balance of many angles and its thoroughness of normative, theoretical and empirical investigations Takashi Inoguchi Professor Emeritus, University of Tokyo, President, University of Niigata Prefecture It would be hard to find a better one-volume overview of the field Anne-Marie Slaughter Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University

      Summary
      • The Handbook of Research Management is a unique tool for the newly promoted research leader. Larger-scale projects are becoming more common throughout the social sciences and humanities, housed in centres, institutes and programmes. Talented researchers find themselves faced with new challenges to act as managers and leaders rather than as individual scholars. They are responsible for the careers and professional development of others, and for managing interactions with university administrations and external stakeholders. Although many scientific and technological disciplines have long been organized in this way, few resources have been created to help new leaders understand their roles and responsibilities and to reflect on their practice. This Handbook has been created by the combined experience of a leading social scientist and a chief executive of a major international research development institution and funder. The editors have recruited a truly global team of contributors to write about the challenges they have encountered in the course of their careers, and to provoke readers to think about how they might respond within their own contexts. This book will be a standard work of reference for new research leaders, in any discipline or country, looking for help and inspiration. The editorial commentaries extend its potential use in support of training events or workshops where groups of new leaders can come together and explore the issues that are confronting them.
      • Review: "The SAGE Handbook of Research Management should prove to be a valuable guide to researchers, grant writing, developing proposals, and teamwork. It is recommended to academic and research libraries." -- L. Heckman American Reference Books Annual Wherever one is in the food-chain of research, one experiences frustrations, aspirations and determinations to secure change to enable what one sees as more effective and efficient processes to deliver life-changing outcomes. Dingwall and McDonnell manage to combine a realism, 'there is no one toolkit', with some useful guidance on the frameworks and framing which is required as a research community if we are to improve our chances of meeting our goals of advancing knowledge in the 21st Century. -- Sandra Dawson, Professor Emeritus Editors Dingwall and McDonnell are prominent researchers based, respectively, in the UK and US, who bring to the project collective expertise in higher education, administration, consulting, journalism, non-profit advocacy, and longitudinal research. Their experience gives them insight into the tensions and conflicting demands researchers in higher education face. The editors have gathered an international group of authors to discuss aspects of management across the research life cycle, with three main sections focused on starting, implementing, and disseminating research. The editors' introduction and conclusion help readers understand the context and interplay of successful management for organizations, teams, and their leaders. -- W. Dressel, Princeton University Library
