In our other chapter in this volume, we discussed the history of the subfield of political psychology, tracing the rise, fall, and continuity of certain themes and theoretical approaches within it. In this chapter, we attempt to situate political psychology in the wider discipline of political science. We begin by documenting its growing influence. We then offer several speculations about the causes of its increasing regard within political science. We further demonstrate how political psychology, in its current form, is relevant to the core concerns of the wider discipline.
