It brings together leading specialists from range of disciplinary backgrounds and geographical regions, to provide state-of-the-art theoretical reflection and empirical research on the evolution of the subject.

The book is divided in to five inter-related sections. Section one evaluates the evolution of events as a discipline and defines what events studies is.
