About the book:

The journal World Politics, published for Princeton's Center of International Studies by Princeton University Press, has been a major forum for refining the "systems" or "functional" approach to political change-and for challenges to that approach, and for essays that compare it with alternatives such as culturalist or dependency theories. Political System and Change includes articles on the analytic categories political scientists have developed for understanding the Third World. Many essays in this anthology are concise summaries of later books that are now famous landmarks in the study of comparative politics. PART I: INTRODUCTION LYNN T.
