The Cambridge Handbook of Social Sciences in Australia is a high quality reference on significant research in Australian Social Sciences. The book is divided into three main sections, covering the central areas of the social sciences - economics, sociology and political science. Each section examines the significant research in the field, placing it within the context of broader debates about the nature of the social sciences and the ways in which more recent institutional changes have shaped how they are defined, taught and researched.
