File Name: issues and methods in comparative politics .zip
This journal is one of the few truly international political science journals with a broad scope across the discipline. As the official journal of the Dutch Political Science Association Nederlandse Kring voor de Wetenschap der Politiek it covers such sub-areas as Dutch and comparative politics, as well as international relations, political theory, public administration and political communication.
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.
This article discusses several crucial questions that comparative political scientists address. These questions also form part of the basis of the current volume. The article first studies the theory and methods used in gathering data and evidence, and then focuses on the concepts of states, state formation, and political consent. Political regimes, political conflict, mass political mobilization, and political instability are other topics examined in this article. The latter portion of the article is devoted to determining how political demands are processed and viewing governance using a comparative perspective. Keywords: comparative political scientists , theory , states , political consent , state formation , comparative perspective , mass political mobilization , political regimes , political conflict , political instability.
My academic training is in economics, but I have worked on public and social policy for most of my professional career. In the s and s, I worked mainly on comparative social policy and held research grants from the then UK Department of Social Security and the European Commission. From and again in I worked as a consultant for the World Bank in Moldova and Lithuania. Subsequently, much of my research has been on the EU, including the effects of the single market on social insurance, the impact of anti-discrimination law and the political economy of the euro area. I have also written on pensions policy from a comparative perspective, and I am currently working on a project on the implications of higher and flexible retirement ages. Other current projects are on delegated governance, specifically the relationships between central banks and governments and the comparative political economy of minimum wages. The public is often told that 'there is no alternative' to the adoption of specific economic policies.

MODERN COMPARATIVE POLITICS: APPROACHES, METHODS AND ISSUES
Schmitter advocates that the future of comparative politics should be about addressing context, complexity, aggregate dynamics, limits to simplified cross-national generalizations, non-reductive assumptions about individual rationality, and an analytical method that is pragmatic and realistic in its assumptions. In this short essay, I argue that most of what Schmitter calls for as the future of comparative politics is already present. Schmitter has reengaged in a debate and discussion that goes back to the origins of comparative politics, and that is how to balance its theoretical inclination for broad cross-national generalization with its area case study empirical basis. In this respect, the future of comparative politics is its past! The objective of the journal is to draw on all of the sub-fields of political science, including comparative studies. Second, the emergence of China as a global power entails situating China and its phenomenal socio-economic transformation within a theoretical and conceptual comparative framework. Much of our knowledge about China is derived from area case studies, but our interest in China is linked to larger theoretical issues relating to democratization, authoritarian regimes, and modernization.
Ну… - произнес голос. - Он очень, очень полный. Ролдан сразу понял. Он хорошо запомнил это обрюзгшее лицо.
Вот это чистая правда, - подумал Джабба. - Послушай, Мидж, к Стратмору я не отношусь ни плохо ни хорошо. Ну, понимаешь, он криптограф. Они все, как один, - эгоцентристы и маньяки. Если им что нужно, то обязательно еще вчера.
Затуманенные глаза Беккера не отрываясь смотрели на торчащий из двери кусок ткани. Он рванулся, вытянув вперед руки, к этой заветной щели, из которой торчал красный хвост сумки, и упал вперед, но его вытянутая рука не достала до. Ему не хватило лишь нескольких сантиметров. Пальцы Беккера схватили воздух, а дверь повернулась.
