International Political Sociology: Looking for Transversal Lines

International Political Sociology: Transversal Lines

Edited by Tugba Basaran, Didier Bigo, Emmanuel-Pierre Guittet and R.B.J. Walker

Routledge, 2016

This book presents an overview and evaluation of contemporary research in international political sociology (IPS). Bringing together leading scholars from many disciplines and diverse geographical backgrounds, it provides unprecedented coverage of the key concepts and research through which IPS has opened up new ways of thinking about international relations. It also considers some of the consequences of such innovations for established forms of social and political analysis. It thus takes the reader on an intellectual journey engaging with questions about boundaries and limits among the many interrelated worlds in which we now live, the ways we conceptualise them, and how we continually reshape boundaries of identities, spaces, authorities and disciplinary knowledge.
