Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Eulau, past president of the American Political Science Association, addresses the problematic relationship between big and small dilemmas in governance and society, and connects his own personal pathways with his and others' explorations of the micro-macro continuum in politics. He demonstrates how experiences in the scholar's private and academic life can be the source of insights but also of hidden biases, and provides glimpses of the problems involved in coming to grips with the false dualism between individual and collective phenomena. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
