Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the book New Frontiers in Comparative Sociology. The book is a collection of notable papers from the journal Comparative Sociology, gathered from its first six volumes spanning the period 2002-2007. It has been organized into five parts: Methods in Comparative Sociology; Radical Social Change; Values, Culture and Democracy; Institutions in Comparative Perspective; and Social Processes. Taken together, all the articles in this book highlights one or more aspects of comparative sociology - some theoretical, some methodological, and some substantive. Some compare social entities in subjective, case-study fashion, while others report on rigorous social research and analyses. Thus, all contribute in one form or another to describing the many and varied facets of the exciting "new" science of comparative sociology.

Keywords: Comparative Sociology; culture; democracy; new frontiers; radical social change
