Finding Handbooks and Companions

Handbooks, companions, and other introductory texts can be very valuable for exploring the existing research on a topic. These sources help you identify major trends in the scholarly debate, find key works and authors, and find your way around multi-disciplinary discussions.

Key tip: Don't judge the utility of a handbook (etc.) by its title - check the Table of Contents to see if individual chapters are relevant to your interests.
