Abstract or Introduction

There are three theoretical schools within the field of comparative politics: the rational choice theories, the culturalist approaches as well as the structural analyses. This paper addresses the culturalist approach within comparative politics. To begin with the paper offers different definitions of ‘culture’, then shows how change in political culture can be measured and presents two different techniques for measuring values. The theory of political culture has many inquiries: among others it tries to explain electoral turnout, change in political behavior, and economic growth.
