The politics list at Princeton stands out as one of the most venerable and distinguished in the field. We publish books that speak not only to topics of contemporary and immediate relevance, but also to enduring questions regarding states, governments, social behavior, and political conflict.
Featuring works that are empirically deep, substantively interesting, and methodologically diverse, the list is representative of the subject in the broadest sense, with books in international relations, comparative politics, political behavior, American politics and political development, political theory and philosophy, legal studies, and political methodology.
