Handbooks and Companions

Our Handbooks and Companions address new developments in the Social Sciences and Humanities, while providing an authoritative guide to theory and method, the key sub-disciplines and the primary debates of today.

  • Each Handbook and Companion draws together newly commissioned work to provide a comprehensive overview of a sub-discipline, and the primary debates of today.
  • The international team of contributors to each Handbook and Companion has been specially chosen for their expertise and knowledge in the field.
  • Each Handbook and Companion is introduced and contextualized by leading subject specialists, lending coherence and authority to each volume.

All of our handbooks are available in print and digital formats, and in 2015 Routledge Handbooks Online was launched to provide online access to academic, corporate and institutional customers. For more information and to request a free trial visit www.routledgehandbooks.com
