Center for the Study of Developing countries the study of comparative politics in Egyptian universities

Auther : Mustapha Kamel AL – Sayyid

 The sub discipline of comparative politics has pioneered the attempt to subject the study of politics to the rigor of the scientific method. It has also reflected the profound changes that took place in the international community since 1960,s. but it has still to take into account the more recent changes of the late 1980,s and early 1990,s which shook the foundation of the international order that had witnessed the rise of that sub discipline in its present from more that three decades ago. The author examines some important works of comparative politics written by Egyptian academics in different periods in order to suggest   how such writings, as well as research and publications in this filed, have partly echoed the evolution of that sub discipline of political science in western countries, and more particularly in the United States. Despite such serious efforts, which took the study of comparative politics in Egypt from the descriptive, historical or legal formalistic approaches that had dominated writings in that sub discipline until the 1960,s, to the use of the structural – functional perspective, and the critical stand adopted by Egyptian political scientists towards western writings on Non – western countries in general , the author concludes that such works by the former do not amount yet to the status of distinct school , nor do they take sufficient account of the enormous variety of approaches and perspectives that have enriched the study of comparative politics in the west during the last three decades , notwithstanding the present reflections on the crisis of this subdisclipline in western countries at present . the author concludes his study by offering some suggestions how to broaden the concerns of specialists of comparative politics in Egypt , the country having the largest number of Arab political scientists .
