The SAGE Handbook of Comparative Politics

Alternative Titles
Handbook of comparative politics
Description

The SAGE Handbook of Comparative Politics presents in one volume an overview of the theoretical, methodological, and substantive elements of comparative political science. The 28 specially commissioned chapters guide the reader through the central issues and debates, presenting a state-of-the-art guide to the past, present, and possible futures of the field.

The Handbook is organized in ways that address larger developments in the field by bringing together leading academics in comparative politics from across many different approaches and many different substantive topics. The volume is organized in three parts. Part I looks at methods and the fields of comparative politics; Part II details research achievements and developments in some of the classic themes of comparative politics research; Part III looks at emerging research themes and issues. Throughout the chapters, the authors have summarized developments within their particular area of interest, discussed challenges relating to the topic, and tried to look toward future developments within the field of comparative politics. The volume should provide a primer on how to ‘do’ or ‘think’ about comparative politics, and on what the relationship of comparative politics research might be to other areas of political study, and to show the many ways in which the field has responded and is responding to new events and challenges in the political world.

Edited by Todd Landman & Neil Robinson

SAGE Handbook of Human Rights

Alternative Titles
Handbook of human rights
Human rights
Description

The SAGE Handbook of Human Rights comprises a two volume set consisting of more than 50 original chapters that clarify and analyze human rights issues of both contemporary and future importance. The Handbook takes an inter-disciplinary approach, combining work in such traditional fields as law, political science and philosophy with such non-traditional subjects as climate change, demography, economics, geography, urban studies, mass communication, and business and marketing. In addition, as human rights has come to play a prominent role in popular culture, there is a section on human rights in art, film, music and literature. The first volume highlights this mainstreaming of human rights that has taken place, particularly over the course of the past two decades. Volume 2 goes into the international, regional and national mechanisms as well as the future directions of human rights issues and debates. Not only does the Handbook provide a state-of-the-art analysis of the discipline that addresses the history and development of human rights standards and its movements, mechanisms and institutions, but it seeks to go beyond this and produce a book that will help lead to prospective thinking. Edited by Anja Mihr & Mark Gibney.

Central themes include providing access to healthcare, national and international intervention, nutrition and health, human and financial resource allocation, freedom of religion versus public policy, discrimination and healthcare policy, universal healthcare coverage, private healthcare versus publicly funded healthcare, and the immediate and long-term costs associated with disease prevention, treatment, and health maintenance.
