Comparative politics has always been schzofrenic. It is a powerful method of analysis and a useful source of information. Both have a promising future, but to realize it both will have to change. This essay explores the dilemmas facing the sub-discipline and suggests some solutions regarding assumptions, concepts and units of analysis and description. One reason for optimism is its globalization and shift from a perspective rooted exclusively in the North and West to an increasing participation of scholars from the South and East.
