This dictionary offers the only comprehensive collection of profiles of political scientists who have made significant contributions to the intellectual development of American political science from its beginnings in the late nineteenth century to the present. Numerous experts helped the editors develop this "consensus" group of 171 political scientists who have made the most important theoretical contributions over the years, with attention to varied approaches and the different subfields. Entries by 111 experts are arranged alphabetically and focus on the main ideas and publications of each political scientist. Appendices and extensive cross-references and a general index make this landmark major reference easily accessible. A short bibliography points to important general readings about the profession.
