The triangular relationship between the social, the political and the cultural has opened up social and political theory to new challenges. The social can no longer be reduced to the category of society, and the political extends beyond the traditional concerns of the nature of the state and political authority.
This Handbook will address a range of issues that have recently emerged from the disciplines of social and political theory, focusing on key themes as opposed to schools of thought or major theorists. It is divided into three sections which address:
The Routledge International Handbook of Contemporary Social and Political Theory encompasses the most up-to-date developments in contemporary social and political theory, and as such is an essential research tool for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as researchers, working in the fields of political theory, social and political philosophy, contemporary social theory, and cultural theory.

'This Handbook does not only bring a short overview of contemporary social and political theories, but each chapter situates the concepts of an author or a theoretical trend in relation to earlier strands as well as later developments. Delanty and Turner have produced a major reference work for the social sciences and undoubtedly the best overall presentation of social theories available today in English.This Handbook makes all previous collections with similar titles look obsolete and unfinished.'
