International in scope, the Sage Handbooks offer critical analysis within a discipline or sub-discipline.

The handbooks cover topics in the following subject areas:

  • Business and Management
  • Communication and Media Studies
  • Criminology and Criminal Justice
  • Counseling and Social Work
  • Education
  • Geography and Urban Studies
  • Marketing
  • Politics and International Relations
  • Psychology
  • Public Policy and Public Administration
  • Research Methods and Evaluation
  • Science, Technical and Medical
  • Sociology

They can be browsed by title or searched individually, in combination with other handbook titles, or included in a search of all Sage Reference titles along with the nearly 50 Encyclopedia and other Handbook titles subscribed to by UML Libraries.  Searches can also be limited to sidebars, images, and/or tables.
