Abstract

Presents an analysis of political culture, a subject which has not always received such treatment. Reviews past uses of the concept, including ten basic elements. The typologies of Elazar and Banfield and Wilson are recast. They essentially imply a continuum from pluralistic to unitary political culture. This continuum can be applied to several political system characteristics, such as parties and legal structures. Results suggest for example, cities with more pluralistic political cultures should have high turnout rates due to disciplined party effort, durable party cleavages along population lines, and few referenda, while cities with more unitary political cultures should be the opposite on these variables. -from Editors
