Current Issue: Volume 108 Issue 03

From the Editor: In this issue (Volume 108, Issue 2) of the Review, as with previous issues, we present articles that ask important questions, such as: What role does a legislature perform in terms of “returns to office” in an authoritarian setting? Are legislatures in authoritarian settings similar or different with regard to the rewards from holding office that are often seen in the West (and particularly the United States)? Do single member district elections, used in the United States, benefit minority candidates? Do quota for the representation of minorities actually benefit minorities (and reduce stereotypes about minorities) in developing countries? Are acute conflicts in places like Africa resolvable, or are they the product of longstanding historical conflicts that cannot be resolved by commonly considered conflict reduction mechanisms? Were the suppositions of Max Weber, upon whose work much of the common wisdom regarding capitalism and state building is based, actually correct? And, finally, do we measure fundamental concepts like “human rights” performance cross-nationally accurately in the data we use, which has so many implications for policy makers? These, and other key issues of interest both to scholars and practitioners are in this issue of the Review.
