Book Issues And Methods In Comparative Politics An Introduction 3Rd Edition
In this way, the book sees comparison as an important means to an end: namely, explanation of observed political phenomena. The book is necessarily grounded in a certain way of 'doing' political science. Without becoming mired in the ongoing debate about different approaches to political science and social science in general, suffice it to say that this book assumes there are observable political events, actors, interests, structures, and outcomes about which political scientists can make reasoned, informed, and intelligent analytical statements.
Variously called 'positivism', 'behaviouralism', or 'post-behaviouralism' Fay ; Von Wright ; Sanders ; Lane ; Flyvberg , this style of political science concentrates on observable political behaviour and events at the individual, group, or national level, and assumes that explanations of that behaviour are 'susceptible to empirical testing' Sanders It is thus grounded in the position that the ultimate objects of comparative politics exist for the most part independent of and prior to their investigation see Lane ; Lawson Moreover, it argues that the world of politics consists of important empirical puzzles to which political scientists apply a set of theories and methods in order to provide meaningful explanation and understanding see Gordon This book is meant to aid those with a similar outlook on studying the political and social world in making statements about politics based on the best empirical evidence available,.
