Politics, Gender and Concepts by Gary Goertz

Book Description

A critique of concepts has been central to feminist scholarship since its inception. However, while gender scholars have identified the analytical gaps in existing social science concepts, few have systematically mapped out a gendered approach to issues in political analysis and theory development. This volume addresses this important gap in the literature by exploring the methodology of concept construction and critique, which is a crucial step to disciplined empirical analysis, research design, causal explanations, and testing hypotheses. Leading gender and politics scholars use a common framework to discuss methodological issues in some of the core concepts of feminist research in political science, including representation, democracy, welfare state governance, and political participation. This is an invaluable work for researchers and students in women's studies and political science.

The Puzzle of Peace moves beyond defining peace as the absence of war and develops a broader conceptualization and explanation for the increasing peacefulness of the international system.

Tale of Two Cultures by Gary Goertz Tale of Two Cultures, Paperback (September 2012)

Some in the social sciences argue that the same logic applies to both qualitative and quantitative methods. This title discusses major differences between these two traditions that touch various aspects of social science research, including design, goals, causal effects and models, concepts and measurement, data analysis, and case selection.

Focuses on the use of 'necessary condition counterfactuals' in explaining two key events in twentieth century history, the start of the First World War and the end of the Cold War. Containing essays by leading figures in the field, this book analyzes the causal logics of necessary and sufficient conditions.
