Recent Editor's Report

Current Issue: Volume 110, Issue 2, May 2016

Note from the Editors: As we wind down as editors of the Review (we are responsible for the remainder of this issue year, but hand off submissions to our successor in the summer), we are very pleased to offer, in this issue, a number of articles that we believe will have an important impact on our field. In this issue of the Review, as with previous issues, we present articles that ask important questions for both scholars and practitioners, such as, How do authoritarian leaders develop strategies of repression? Why do individuals join ethnic insurgencies? What role can civic organizations play in promoting political participation? Are there more efficient and replicable ways to code “expert” data? What does “representation” really mean?
