Bates, Robert H.
PS: Political Science and Politics, v30 n2 p166-69 Jun 1997
Examines the dichotomy between area studies and the more traditional discipline of political science. Discusses those areas of political science that relate to area studies and suggests several reasons for an intransigence to change within the more traditional discipline. Recommends a cooperative and interdisciplinary effort between both camps. (MJP)
