The Civic Culture Revisited

Edited by:
  • Gabriel A. Almond - Sociology, Stanford University, USA
  • Sidney Verba - Hauser Center for Nonprofit Organizations and Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University

May 1989 | 432 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Presenting a major intellectual development in the history of the social sciences, Almond and Verba have updated their classical five-nation study of comparative politics. Looking back over twenty-five years since the study's conception, Almond and Verba address many important questions--brought out by top scholars of the field--as to the validity of the inferences drawn from their findings and the "soundness" of their study. In addition, they recognize the many substantial changes in political culture that have transpired in the five nations studied--England, Germany, Italy, Mexico, and the United States--over the past two decades. The contributing authors to this book are among the best in the field of comparative politics, thus making this book consistent with the scholarly precedent set forth in the first volume. Together these two books are essential resources for professionals and advanced students in political science, international relations, comparative politics, and political sociology.
