Reforming Political Science

Lawrence M. Mead

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Political science is in decline because it has become too focused on methodological precision, has lost contact with public policy, and recruits only among academics. To become more vital and relevant, it must use a wider range of methods, recover a voice on policy issues, and expect much more government experience from its recruits.
