Views

Quotations: "My motivations are simple. I do research because I want to understand how politics and institutions work. I write because I want to share the information I have gleaned, along with my tentative understandings, with others. Besides, research and writing are things that my wife and I like to do together. Our work seeks to join our understanding of political processes to the creation and application of theories of formal organization."
