Schmitter advocates that the future of comparative politics should be about addressing context, complexity, aggregate dynamics, limits to simplified cross-national generalizations, non-reductive assumptions about individual rationality, and an analytical method that is pragmatic and realistic in its assumptions. In this short essay, I argue that most of what Schmitter calls for as the future of comparative politics is already present. Schmitter has reengaged in a debate and discussion that goes back to the origins of comparative politics, and that is how to balance its theoretical inclination for broad cross-national generalization with its area case study empirical basis. In this respect, the future of comparative politics is its past! The objective of the journal is to draw on all of the sub-fields of political science, including comparative studies. Second, the emergence of China as a global power entails situating China and its phenomenal socio-economic transformation within a theoretical and conceptual comparative framework. Much of our knowledge about China is derived from area case studies, but our interest in China is linked to larger theoretical issues relating to democratization, authoritarian regimes, and modernization.
