Item description for New Directions in Quantitative Comparative Sociology (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology) by Wilhelmus Antonius Arts...
The comparative method is at the core of sociological inquiry and gained new importance, emphasis and practitioners particularly after World War II as a consequence of a large variety of international and global scale developments. The contributors to this book regard nations or countries as contextual units of analysis and treat them as variables. Theoretical explanations are presented of how social phenomena are systematically related to characteristics of the nation states and these explanations are tested empirically using the qualitative tools of mainstream sociology. The chapters in this book should be useful to a broad audience and a range of social scientists who are interested in the understanding of contemporary social phenomena that are no longer limited to national border but that are transnational or of a global order.
