The Social Logic of Politics Series, edited by Scott D. McClurg (formerly edited by Alan S. Zuckerman), directs
attention to several related clusters of research in the social sciences.
At the core is a theoretical principle: individuals make political
other choices, by taking into account cues from other persons.
Studies move from individuals to groups to large scale
collectivities. Usually examining micro-politics-voting and other
forms of political participation; the place of politics in
households, the family, the friendship unit, and the neighborhood-
this research also studies how broader political and social contexts
influence and are influenced by these micro-processes. It includes as
well "small group behavior" in political institutions, such as
exchanges of cues in legislatures and patron-client relations in
bureaucratic agencies and political parties. Books in The Social
Logic of Politics Series will apply research techniques that run the
gamut of contemporary political science, sociology, communications,
