Contributors sought for The Encyclopedia of Modern Political Ideologies to be published by M.E. Sharpe in 2004
The Encyclopedia will be a two-volume academic reference work furnishing a comprehensive overview of modern European and American political culture from the early modern period to the present. The Encyclopedia will consist of 28 chronologically-arranged chapters with a maximum length of 15,000 words per chapter. Each chapter will furnish a historical review and critical examination of a major political ideology of the modern era, from absolutism to the anti-neoliberal global justice movement. The Encyclopedia is designed to serve as a standard, comprehensive reference work for universities, public libraries, media outlets, and individual academics.
Authors will be encouraged to offer accessible (i.e., jargon-free) accounts providing nonspecialists with an appropriate introduction to their subject area, as well as information and interpretations that will be of interest to scholars specializing in the study of political ideologies. Each chapter will conclude with a ‘Focus’ item - a short (1-2,000) word evaluation of the contribution of an important historian, philosopher or political scientist to our understanding of the political ideology under discussion - and a bibliographical essay.
Final drafts are to be submitted to the general editor by April 30, 2003 (1-2 month extensions can be negotiated in particular circumstances). Upon publication, contributors will be paid $250 plus a copy of the Encyclopedia.
