A judicious and comprehensive treatment, written with great clarity. Dietrich Rueschemeyer Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Brown University, USA I recommend it enthusiastically to anyone who seeks to carry out or learn about comparative-historical analysis. James Mahoney Gordon Fulcher Professor in Decision-Making, Departments of Political Science and Sociology, Northwestern University Matthew Lange's study is the first book-length overview of the different methods of doing comparative history, and it is particularly welcome for its insistence that there is no one way of doing comparative history and that eclecticism and the combination of different methodologies are things to be valued. -- Stephen A. Smith, University of Oxford
