Federalism and Decentralization Book Series

The Routledge Studies in Federalism and Decentralization book series is coedited by Paolo Dardanelli and John Kincaid. The editors invite submissions of research monographs and edited collections that advance theoretical knowledge.

The series publishes outstanding scholarship on federalism and decentralization, defined broadly, and is open to theoretical, empirical, philosophical, and historical books. The series includes two types of work. First, it features research monographs that are substantially based on primary research and make a significant original contribution to their field. Second, it contains books that address key issues of policy-relevant interest or summarize the research literature and provide a broad comparative coverage.
