It was assigned to my comparative politics class (master's level) and everyone hated it. I trudged through 50 pages until I just couldn't take it anymore. Very poorly written and vague, but drenched in academic-sounding details. Lim's "Doing Comparative Politics" and Landman's "Issues and Methods in Comparative Politics" are much more clearly written and easier to understand.

Comparative politics is a field in political science characterized either by the use of the comparative method or other empirical methods to explore politics within (as opposed to between) countries. Substantively, this can include questions relating to political institutions, political behavior, conflict, and the causes and consequences of economic development.

Do you want to read the rest of this article? Request full-text. In general the current comparative literature on mass electoral behavior can be viewed as a debate on the relative importance of social identities and economic interests (Lichbach and Zuckerman, 1997). For advanced democracies, elections tend to take the form of a referendum on the economy, with voters rewarding or punishing incumbent political parties at the ballot box depending on their past policy performance (Lewis-Beck andStegmaier, 2000, Geys, 2006).

Comparative Politics: Rationality, Culture, and Structure brings together leading political scientists to assess the research schools that direct scholarship in comparative politics. It examines rational choice theory, culturalist analysis, and structuralist approaches, by applying them to the study of electoral politics, social movements and revolutions, political economy and the state. The essays return analysis to basic questions concerning the development of theory and the nature of explanations. The contributors are established scholars and pioneers in the various subfields of comparative politics.

To say that Comparative Politics: Rationality, Culture, and Structure has gotten mixed reviews is an understatement. The book is quite heavy on the verbage and would probably be better suited to the graduate student going into the comparative politics subfield rather than undergraduates who may be taking an intro to CP course for general education credit. This book is no easy slog for graduate students either. One often has to spend a full day with this text to isolate the main concepts from the verbal soup, which can make things rather tedious at times.

But on the bright side, the book is chalked full of literature citations that should be useful for the graduate comparativist and the main idea of the book to illustrate that rationality, culture, and structure each play an important role in the diverse subfield of comparative politics whether it be in ethic conflict, political economy, institutions, etc.

My one wish is that they would put in a literature cited section at the end of each chapter, rather than just in the bibliography at the end because they cite a lot of literature in each section and it can be difficult if one has to stop reading to check a citation or finish reading a lengthy chapter and then struggle to locate said citation within a textbook full of them.

Despite these complaints, the book provides a decent introduction to the field.

My review is for the actual Kindle product which does not have page numbers. This makes it impossible to cite in research, papers for classes, etc. I hope Kindle fixes this gap in capability for there is a large market share that requires page numbers to cite works.

returned it and no troubles with return

While a great compliation of leading political scientists, this book assumes a high level of proir familiarity with the topic matter. For the novice reader, this book was way over my head. For experts, I can not see why they would be reading a book by various authors as opposed to reading the works directly from the theorists cited.
  • Wat!?
Unless you are a master's or PhD student specializing solely in comparative politics, don't read this book. It was assigned to my comparative politics class (master's level) and everyone hated it. I trudged through 50 pages until I just couldn't take it anymore. Very poorly written and vague, but drenched in academic-sounding details.

Lim's "Doing Comparative Politics" and Landman's "Issues and Methods in Comparative Politics" are much more clearly written and easier to understand.
