This book exemplifies how distinct methods and epistemological persuasions in the social sciences can be meaningfully integrated and applied in a large international research project. The procedures are outlined step by step and enable readers to understand and apply these themselves. Important differences between common statistical procedures and recent developments in comparative research based on set theory and Boolean algebra for research situations with a limited number of cases (small N) become apparent. This is usually the case in Comparative Politics at the national level, for exampleA comparing developments and policies within the European Union or other world regions, but also at a sub-national or local level. Various patterns and historical 'paths' can be demonstrated in this way. The substantive example chosen, the political consequences of the Great Depression in Europe in the 1930s, has important repercussions for the current world economic and financial crisis as well
"This book approaches current controversies concerning qualitative and quantitative procedures in the social sciences and incorporates new methods showing how they can supplement each other. It is based on a comprehensive international research project that readers can apply to their findings through the data set provided on the author's home page."--Publisher's website
