Robert Adcock, Winner of the 2015 C&M Award for Concept Analysis in Political Science

The International Political Science Association’s Committee on Concepts & Methods (C&M) is pleased to announce the winner of its 2015 Award for Concept Analysis in Political Science. This award is given every three years for the best work in concept analysis, broadly defined. The award committee for the 2015 competition was composed of three distinguished scholars: Dan Slater, University of Chicago (Committee Chair); Roman David, Lingnan University; and Ingo Rohlfing, University of Bremen.

The winner of the 2015 award is Robert Adcock, who will be joining the School of International Studies at American University in Fall 2015, for his Liberalism and the Emergence of American Political Science: A Transatlantic Tale (Oxford University Press, 2014).

In this work of remarkable historical sweep and theoretical heft, Adcock charts the birth of American political science from its largely unexplored European intellectual parentage. In so doing, Adcock traces the fascinating transatlantic travels and diverse historical expressions of one of political science’s most vital concepts: liberalism. Unlike scholars who portray liberalism as a relatively monolithic ideology infusing American political thought, Adcock meticulously chronicles the diverse and competing streams of liberalism that evolved and migrated across the Atlantic in response to the twin challenges of mass democracy and industrial capitalism. From common roots in the “democratized classical liberalism” of intellectual giants such as Alexis de Tocqueville and John Stuart Mill, as well as less-famed continental thinkers like Francois Guizot and Francis Lieber, there emerged both the “progressive liberalism” of scholars such as Woodrow Wilson at Princeton and the "disenchanted classical liberalism” best characterized by William Graham Sumner at Yale. Stunning in both its range of historical source materials as well as its subtlety

Un Institut d'études politiques à Tunis?

Les professeurs Hatem M'Rad, membre du comité exécutif de l'AISP, et son collaborateur Hamadi Redissi, ont rencontré le ministre de l'Enseignement supérieur tunisien Chiheb Bouden pour discuter des différentes formules de création d'un Institut d'études politiques basé à Tunis. Cette initiative fait suite à un appel lancé l'an dernier par les deux politologues, et qui a rencontré un nombre signatif d'appuis parmi la communauté universitaire tunisienne composée notamment de doyens et de directeurs d'établissement provenant de différentes disciplines. Le ministre a accueilli très favorablement l'intiative de messieurs M'Rad et Redissi, et a promis d'y faire suite.
