Description:
How can we best understand the major debates and recent movements in contemporary empirical political theory? In this volume, the contributors present their views of the central core, methodologies and development of empirical political science. Their disparate views of the unifying themes of the discipline reflect different theoretical orientations, from behavioralism to rational choice, cultural theory to postmodernism, and feminism to Marxism.
