Laboratory experiments, survey experiments and field experiments occupy a central and growing place in the discipline of political science. The Cambridge Handbook of Experimental Political Science is the first text to provide a comprehensive overview of how experimental research is transforming the field. Some chapters explain and define core concepts in experimental design and analysis. Other chapters provide an intellectual history of the experimental movement. Throughout the book, leading scholars review groundbreaking research and explain, in personal terms, the growing influence of experimental political science. The Cambridge Handbook of Experimental Political Science provides a collection of insights that can be found nowhere else. Its topics are of interest not just to researchers who are conducting experiments today, but also to researchers who think that experiments can help them make new and important discoveries in political science and beyond.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This handbook is a monumental undertaking. It contains something of value for political scientists of every methodological and substantive stripe.' Morris P. Fiorina, Stanford University
'Once rare outside the psychological laboratory, experimental methods are now used throughout the social sciences. Focusing on experimentation in political science, this handbook provides a state-of-the-art review of the history, logic, and methodology of experimentation, including the implementation of experiments in representative surveys. Comprehensive reviews of what has been learned from experiments in areas as diverse as voter behavior, institutions, identity, and elite bargaining highlight the substantive contributions of experimental research to social science theory testing and development. Written by leading experts in the field, this handbook will be a valuable and authoritative resource for years to come.' Norbert Schwarz, University of Michigan
'This handbook is a long overdue contribution to a burgeoning area in political science. It will be extremely useful to any political scientist contemplating or currently using experimental methods.' Diana C. Mutz, University of Pennsylvania
'In the Cambridge Handbook of Experimental Political Science, Druckman, Green, Kuklinski, and Lupia put together thirty-six contributed chapters covering the design, scope, and methods of experimental political science. They have taken on the core issues, such as the trade-offs between internal and external validity. They explore the value of laboratory versus field versus survey experiments. The chapters here show how political science draws from other experimental fields, creating its own broadly unique approach to experimentation. The authors of the chapters here explore the ways in which experiments drawn from the traditions of cognitive science, psychology, and economics take some things for granted and how experiments in each of these traditions assume different things to be consequential. This book should be used in every first-year graduate curriculum, not just as a book on experiments, but as an excellent primer on research design.' Mathew D. McCubbins, University of Southern California
