So far we have looked at the conceptual and theoretical aspects of comparative politics. These provide us with critical context and guidance, helping provide direction to the practice of comparison: the kinds of questions that need to be asked, the methods that can be used project, and the pitfalls to be avoided. This chapter is partly a survey of methods and partly a practical How To guide to the comparative process, giving more insight into the dynamics of that process. The goal is not to cover the details of specific techniques such as interviewing or statistical analysis so much as to provide an outline of strategies that will help students working on comparative projects of their own.
