Synopses & Reviews
Series Editor: Claire Sprague The volumes in this series examine the impact of feminist advocacy, theory and methodology on the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.
Book News Annotation:
Political scientists (U. of Texas-El Paso) argue that their profession is operating far below its full intellectual capacity because it has not made connections with women, gender, or feminist analysis. Focusing on six relatively autonomous subfields, including political theory, comparative politics, and international relations, they identify bridge points that could rejuvenate the discipline.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Authors Kathleen A. Staudt and William G. Weaver argue that political science as a discipline is operating well under full intellectual capacity because connections have not been made with women, gender, or feminist analysis. Staudt and Weaver thoroughly examine the discipline, incorporating analysis of the six relatively autonomous subfields that define political science - political theory, American politics, comparative politics, international relations, public law, and public administration. Employing Rounaq Johan's integrative-transformative framework, Staudt and Weaver's study reaches beyond U.S. boundaries into comparative and international studies, connecting political science to other social sciences and humanities disciplines and identifying bridge points that can rejuvenate the mainstream of political science, which the authors view as narrow and constricted. Staudt and Weaver document their judgment persuasively. They effectively combine in-depth analysis with original, substantive empirical data culled from mainstream journals, questionnaire responses, syllabi, and textbooks.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 162-187) and index.
