"While some new journals slice thematically across disciplinary boundaries, others plough even narrower subfields. Contemporary Political Theory seeks to buck the trend [...] this is a journal for theorists of the political who resist self-definition as scientists - for [those] who do not believe that numerical formulas best encapsulate the messy complexity of human interactions. [...] For those whose philosophic tastes relish more unusual combinations - from Camus as post-colonial to Hegel and wet nursing - there is good reason to expect this journal to make the grade."
