9780803934641: Redefining Comparative Politics: Promise Versus Performance (SAGE Library of Social Research)

Over the past three decades, comparative politics has undergone significant change. It has been transformed from geographically defined studies to comparative analysis and the construction of explanatory theory. This book evaluates the current state of, and trends within, comparative politics. The author reviews the literature in the field and the major topics of research. He argues that the transformation of the discipline, the `revolution in comparative politics′, fell well short of its expectations.
