This collection of readings serves as a broad introduction to comparative research in the social sciences — stressing mainly work in sociology, but also representing anthropology, political science, and other disciplines. The articles were chosen for readability, but also represent the best work in the field. Presents comparative research on topics ranging from stratification, women and gender issues, politics, to attitudes and values. Represents many different styles of work — from qualitative to statistical, from two-nation comparisons to multi-country analyses, from the analytic to the advocacy mode, from conservative to radical.
