Since its inception, Research in Political Sociology (RPS) has the primary objective of publishing original, high quality manuscripts to increase our understanding of political structures and processes. RPS and the American Sociological Association’s Section on Political Sociology share this goal, and the publication cooperates with the section to achieve sociological understanding of political phenomena. RPS is a resource that can be used by political sociologists to strengthen and develop the unique skills and interests they bring to sociology. The articles in RPS are directed towards identifying, understanding, and explaining the various interrelations that exist within and between social and political phenomena. This includes exploring the underlying social roots or origins of politics and power; the organization, management, and process of political power structure; and the effects of political decision-making and power structures on the surrounding society and culture. The intent of RPS is to share with political sociologists and other interested parties including political scientists, the full array of theoretical, methodological, and substantive interests that exist in the field. RPS is open to all theoretical, methodological, and scholarly points of view, irrespective of political content, so long as they advance our sociological understanding of political dynamics and institutional structures.
