Capitalist development and democracy by Dietrich Rueschemeyer( Book )
27 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 791 libraries worldwide
The authors offer a fresh and persuasive resolution to the controversy arising out of these contrasting traditions. Focusing on advanced industrial countries, Latin America, and the Caribbean, they find that the rise and persistence of democracy cannot be explained either by an overall structural correspondence between capitalism and democracy or by the role of the bourgeoisie as the agent of democratic reform. Rather, capitalist development is associated with democracy because it transforms the class structure, enlarging the working and middle classes, facilitating their self-organization, and thus making it more difficult for elites to exclude them. Simultaneously, development weakens the landed upper class, democracy's most consistent opponent
Bringing the state back in by Social Science Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
38 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and held by 766 libraries worldwide
Until recently, dominant theoretical paradigms in the comparative social sciences did not highlight states as organizational structures or as potentially autonomous actors. Indeed, the term 'state' was rarely used. Current work, however, increasingly views the state as an agent which, although influenced by the society that surrounds it, also shapes social and political processes. The contributors to this volume, which includes some of the best recent interdisciplinary scholarship on states in relation to social structures, make use of theoretically engaged comparative and historical investiga

"Comparative Historical Analysis in the Social Sciences will serve as an invaluable resource for scholars in the field, and it will represent a challenge to many other social scientists - especially those who have raised skeptical concerns about comparative historical analysis in the past."--Jacket

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 324 libraries worldwide
Globalization and the future of the welfare state ( Book )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 321 libraries worldwide
"Beginning in the last quarter of the twentieth century, the global political economy has undergone a profound transformation. Democracy has swept the globe, and both rich and developing nations must compete in an increasingly integrated world economy." "How are social welfare policies being affected by this wave of economic globalization? Leading researchers explore the complex question in this comparative study. The developing countries they analyze in Globalization and the Future of the Welfare State demonstrate that although there is great variability across countries and regions, domestic political processes and institutions play key roles in managing the disruptions wrought by globalization."--Jacket

Usable theory : analytic tools for social and political research by Dietrich Rueschemeyer( Book )
15 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 313 libraries worldwide
The project of twentieth-century sociology and political science - to create predictive scientific theory - resulted in few full-scale theories that can be taken off the shelf and successfully applied to empirical puzzles. Yet focused 'theory frames' that formulate problems and point to relevant causal factors and conditions have produced vibrant, insightful, and analytically oriented empirical research. While theory frames alone cannot offer explanation or prediction, they guide empirical theory formation and give direction to inferences from empirical evidence. They are also responsible for much of the progress in the social sciences. In "Usable Theory", distinguished sociologist Dietrich Rueschemeyer shows graduate students and researchers how to construct theory frames and use them to develop valid empirical hypotheses in the course of empirical social and political research. Combining new ideas as well as analytic tools derived from classic and recent theoretical traditions, the book enlarges the rationalist model of action by focusing on knowledge, norms, preferences, and emotions, and it discusses larger social formations that shape elementary forms of action. Throughout, "Usable Theory" seeks to mobilize the implicit theoretical social knowledge used in everyday life. It offers tools for theory building in social and political research. It complements the rationalist model of action with discussions of knowledge, norms, preferences, and emotions. It relates theoretical ideas to problems of methodology. It situates elementary forms of action in relation to larger formations. It combines new ideas with themes from classic and more recent theories
