Of course, the objects of some quests for theoretical understanding may prove elusive, receding from the general to the particular. However, we think sociologists should strive to resist the pull of cultural theorizing into particularism. Our methodological injunction should be, with due institutional and historical alertness, to find the interaction that clarifies the order that lies beneath what at first appears to be confusingly heterogeneous processes, never to lightly abdicate the search for explanatory empirical patterns (Paige, 1999).
James and Kent Redding put race theory in the forefront of an expanded conception of how political sociology needs to address theories of the state. They do this by examining theories about how race and ethnicity are politically constructed.
Increasing scrutiny of the media’s impact on voter preferences and participation, candidate and official behavior, and political competition in general are most welcomed at this point and may be among the major strengths of the cultural approach (Hayles, 1990; Johnston, 1998; Schudson, 2003). Still, many would argue that a cultural emphasis needs to be counterbalanced by a continued interest in the political economy, lest the focus on ideas distract from the importance of resources and interests.
