Political Culture and Institutional Development in Nicaragua and Costa Rica: World Making in the Tropics crafts a synthetic approach to political culture by blending rationalist, structuralist, and culturalist theories. The book also deploys this synthetic approach to show how political-cultural factors have shaped political and economic development in two paradigmatic cases of failure and success. Cambridge University Press (2005). Book Prize: Choice Outstanding Academic Title (2006).
