Beyond Paradigms: Analytic Eclecticism in the Study of World Politics
Macmillan International Higher Education, Aug 31, 2010 - Political Science - 240 pages
While paradigm-bound research has generated powerful insights in international relations, it has fostered a tunnel vision that hinders progress and widens the chasm between theory and policy. In this important new book, Sil and Katzenstein draw upon recent scholarship to illustrate the benefits of a more pragmatic and eclectic style of research.
