About the Product

The entirely new International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences, 2nd Edition, covers scholarship and fields that have emerged and matured since the publication of the original international edition. Like its predecessors, this set meets the needs of high school and college students, researchers inside and outside of academia, lay readers and professionals.

The new set highlights the expanding influence of economics in social science research and features nearly 3,000 entirely new articles and important biographies contributed by thousands of scholars — including Nobel Prize winners — from around the world on an array of topics that reflect upon today’s global climate.

Multidisciplinary in scope, International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences, 2nd Edition, is invaluable for studies in sociology, political science, economics, anthropology, psychology and other fields.
