Contemporary Research in International Relations: A Perspective and a Critical Appraisal
By Dina A. Zinnes
Free Press, 1976, 477 pp

It has been a scandal of contemporary political science that "methodology" has been developed as a discrete and autonomous field.

It will interest only those already initiated into the rites and convince no one.
