9780521830324: Democratization and Research Methods

Democratization and Research Methods is a coherent survey and critique of both democratization research and the methodology of comparative politics. The two themes enhance each other: the democratization literature illustrates the advantages and disadvantages of various methodological approaches, and the critique of methods makes sense of the vast and bewildering democratization field. Michael Coppedge argues that each of the three main approaches in comparative politics - case studies and comparative histories, formal modeling and large-sample statistical analysis - accomplishes one fundamental research goal relatively well: 'thickness', integration and generalization, respectively. Throughout the book, comprehensive surveys of democratization research demonstrate that each approach accomplishes one of these goals well but the other two poorly. Chapters cover conceptualization and measurement, case studies and comparative histories, formal models and theories, political culture and survey research, and quantitative testing. The final chapter summarizes the state of knowledge about democratization and lays out an agenda for multi-method research.

Recensione:

“Democratization and Research Methods is a singularly comprehensive and impressive examination of the democratization literature through the lens of various methodological approaches. With extraordinary breadth and depth of understanding, author Michael Coppedge sheds light on both the democratization and social science methods literatures.” – Wendy Hunter, University of Texas Austin

“By weaving together the study of democratization with a guide to comparative research methods, Coppedge has provided a major contribution to the field. Students and seasoned scholars will appreciate the grand tour of major analytic approaches through the lens of a substantively critical question. This will be an invaluable tool for teaching.” – Evan Lieberman, Princeton University

"Coppedge takes us on a rich, methodologically-sophisticated journey through some of the thorniest territory in political science - how nations become, and remain, democratically-governed. Highly rewarding." – Michael Ross, University of California, Los Angeles

"Studying politics rigorously is hard, and studying democratization is especially so. Too often, political scientists respond to these challenges by retreating to small questions that can be studied with particular tools they are good at deploying. In this superb book Michael Coppedge shows why this response is wrong-headed. But he does much more than this. He provides a an up-to-date analysis of the major approaches to the study of democratization; he makes a compelling case for addressing important problems of democratization with multiple methods; he explains how different methods can be mutually complementary in the study of democratization; and he lays out a bold research agenda for the the future. The book should quickly become required reading in courses on democracy and democratization as well as an essential part in the methods training of the next generation of political scientists." – Ian Shapiro, author of The Real World of Democratic Theory

Descrizione del libro:

Democratization and Research Methods summarizes what researchers know about why countries become and remain democracies, and why they often do not. It also evaluates the various methods social scientists use to answer such questions. Michael Coppedge draws lessons that can be applied to any political phenomenon that is studied comparatively.
