    DescriptionThis volume brings together nearly 20 papers from some two hundred presented at the 1999 Political Science Association (PSA) conference. British political science is well represented with papers on parties, political theory and the history of political thought but so too are less familiar areas such as the politics of Latin America and the politics of poststructuralism.
