Perception vs. Observation, or the Contributions of Rational Choice Theory and Area Studies to Contemporary Political Science.
Johnson, Chalmers
PS: Political Science and Politics, v30 n2 p170-74 Jun 1997
Criticizes the notion that the empiricism of economics is more valid (and therefore more valuable) to the field of political science than the more subjective efforts of area studies. Specifically responds to Robert Bates's categorization of area studies as "unscientific" and unduly "humanist." Briefly discusses significant works within area studies. (MJP)
