About this book


Comparison is essential for the development of generalizations about politics and government. This book examines the issues involved in the attempts to compare political systems, and discusses how the methods and results of Comparative Politics can be improved. Covering a wide range of approaches to comparative research and presenting an array of case examples to illustrate his argument, Guy Peters provides both an accessible introduction to comparative methodology and a balance sheet of results and prospects.
