Comparative Politics as a Distinctive Approach
  • An Approach to Studying Political Phenomena
  • finding the general in the particular as a means
    to explanation.
  • Goal is Explanation
  • how and why something occurs, rather than what
    occurs.
  • Theory, general or comparative, provides a lens
    for discovering "why."
  • Conceptualization means for finding general in
    the particular
