THE BLOGPAGES

Welcome to the blogpages of Political Power and Social Theory (PPST), a biannual scholarly journal published by Emerald Publishing. In these pages we offer special features relating the latest PPST volumes, special symposia on current events and issues, and various other reviews and forums with contributions from guest writers and PPST authors. The medium may be different from the journal, but the spirit is the same: to offer a space for critical social scientific reflection on power and politics in the world.

 

For more information on the journal, see the journal's main webpage.
