Essays in Honor of Aaron Wildavsky
Culture Matters by Richard J. Ellis
Book DescriptionCulture Matters explores the role of political culture studies as one of the major investigative fields in contemporary political science. Culture theory was the focal point of the late Aaron Wildavsky's teaching and research for the last decade of his life, a life that profoundly affected many fields of political science from the study of the presidency to public budgeting. Hence, in this volume, original essays prepared in Wildavsky's honor examine the arenas of rationale choice, institutions, theories of change, political risk, the environment, and practical politics.
