'This stimulating volume bring together a host of well-known scholars to consider how, when and why political science contributes - or fails to contribute - policy-relevant insights to real-world concerns.' - Pippa Norris, Harvard University, USA, and the University of Sydney, Australia 'The call for relevance has been made ever more strongly in recent years. Few political scientists would disagree with this laudable aim, but they often do not know what relevance is, whether it is always to be preferred, and how to be relevant. The Relevance of Political Science ably answers these questions and many more. It addresses core intellectual issues about the nature of our discipline and offers solutions about how to broaden and deepen the intellectual endeavour.' - Peter John, University College London, UK
