The Journal of Political Philosophy is an international journal devoted to the study of theoretical issues arising out of moral legal and political life. It welcomes and hopes to foster work cutting across a variety of disciplinary concerns among them philosophy sociology history economics and political science. The journal encourages new approaches including (but not limited to): feminism; environmentalism; critical theory post-modernism and analytical Marxism; social and public choice theory; law and economics critical legal studies and critical race studies; and game theoretic socio-biological and anthropological approaches to politics. It also welcomes work in the history of political thought which builds to a larger philosophical point and work in the philosophy of the social sciences and applied ethics with broader political implications. Featuring a distinguished editorial board from major centres of thought from around the globe the journal draws equally upon the work of non-philosophers and philosophers and provides a forum of debate between disparate factions who usually keep to their own separate journals. "In the relatively short time since it began publication The Journal of Political Philosophy has established itself as one that nobody with a serious interest in the subject can afford to do without. I already find myself citing it as often as the leading American journals in the field. It seems to me to have two special strengths. One is that it takes a broad view of the subject-matter paying particular attention to relations between political philosophy and the social sciences. The other is that its contributors do not confine themselves to addressing the rather narrow range of issues currently agitating scholars in North America." Professor Brian Barry Columbia University New York USA " The Journal of Political Philosophy publishes some of the most innovative work in the field today. Its articles are of consistently high quality." Iris Young University of Pittsburgh USA "The Journal of Political Philosophy has for several years catered for the needs of philosophers political theorists and historians of political intellect. It is unafraid of crossing the frontiers between these branches of thought. Long may it continue." J. G. A. Pocock John Hopkins University USA.
