This comprehensive Handbook provides an insight into the main concepts and academic debates on taxation from a political science perspective. Providing a background to current debates on green taxation, taxation and inequality, taxation and gender, tax evasion and avoidance, and tax compliance, it offers potential avenues for future research.

The Handbook explores the historical evolution of modern tax systems, contemporary tax politics from a comparative perspective, global tax politics from an international relations perspective, and the formation of tax policy preferences of taxpayers, voters, business associations and parties. Expert contributors analyse the foundations of the field of research and focus on key debates, including the links between colonization and taxation, international cooperation against tax evasion and avoidance, and the taxation of financial transactions.

The Handbook on the Politics of Taxation will be a vital resource for academics and students of public finance and public policy. Its exploration of tax compliance and voter preferences will also be beneficial for practitioners and policy makers in these fields.
Critical Acclaim
‘Quite simply the best Handbook on the politics of taxation available. Comprehensive and erudite.’
– Philipp Genschel, European University Institute, Italy

‘This volume covers the politics of taxation in a way that few other existing studies—either single or multi-authored—can pretend to do. Hakelberg and Seelkopf have done us a great service by putting together an impressive team writing on a broad range of tax issues ranging from those deep in history to today. This Handbook is sure to be of interest to many scholars in a range of disciplines.’
– David Stasavage, New York University, US
