Sample text

By looking simultaneously at both the role of the state and local communities, this book is a work of both political sociology and social history. Both elections and everyday life, Parliament and poverty, are parts of the story. 52 This book is also simultaneously a national and a comparative community study. Studying a single community in-depth has both strengths and weaknesses. It allows for a rich investigation of the inter-relationships among a wide variety of groups and institutions. Yet the single community study always begs the question of representativeness.
