The degree to which a theoretical domain is temporally and spatially localized must be evaluated through the lens of history (Goodwin, 2001:293–306). The cultural turn and the uses of culture in political sociology come in close association with other new directions in sociology, for 7 This is not simply a state of affairs unique to a few theoretical entities. For example, what appears to be a quite general “interest group” in one theory may turn out to be a local creation of Progressive Era politics (Clemens, 1997), and the truths about Finanzkapital (Hilferding, 1981; Lenin, 1933) may turn out to be local and transient German truths (Hicks, 1988; Zysman, 1984).
How do we and others “see” rules? In other words, the power of rule breakers depends on their recognizing power potential in votes, organization, and mobilization. ” Thus rule making consists of strategies to control people through the state, whereas challenges to these rules involve defying them and working hard to change them. The theory section then flows into three chapters that update debates among the new pluralist and neofunctionalist, conflict and political economy, and state-centered or politycentered perspectives.
