The British Journal of Politics & International Relations is a major new refereed journal published by Blackwell Publishers under the auspices of the Political Studies Association of the United Kingdom. The Journal fills a gap in the academic market for work on the United Kingdom. It provides an outlet for and encourages the development of rigorous theoretically informed analysis of British Politics including the role of Britain in European and world politics. The Journal combines articles on institutions political processes and policy-making with work which places British Politics in a wider context or problematizes the notions of Britain and the U.K. The British Journal of Politics & International Relations provides a forum for work in any area of political science and international relations which reflects British theoretical traditions and their relationship to other traditions particularly those of continental Europe. The Journal also publishes more general work on theoretical international European Union or comparative themes which illustrates and illuminates aspects of the British political experience. A particularly important feature of The Journal will be its review articles. The editors will commission a series of overviews of research in the various sub-disciplines within Political Science and International Relations emphasising the distinctive nature of the British contribution to the particular sub-disciplines. These review articles will serve three distinct but related functions. First the reviews will be useful to students and academics trying to get to grips with developments in particular areas. Second in aggregate the reviews will help to establish the current positions/status of the discipline. Third they will celebrate the British profession and its contribution to the discipline while reflecting on its relationship to traditions of Political Science and International Relations scholarship elsewhere and especially in the United States.
