about this item

Political scientists from Europe provide seven chapters that address four theoretical and methodological challenges in comparative politics--the dissolution of the nation-state as the main object of inquiry; the increasing complexity of concepts and methods; the capacity of the discipline to accumulate knowledge; and the tensions between parsimonious and contextually rich explanations--which bring up five long-standing problems: interdependence, multi-level functioning, the tension between parsimony and variety, multiple methods, and how to accumulate knowledge and avoid the unrelated addition of knowledge.
