Summary/Abstract: In spite of the fact that American political science is comparatively well developed, before the 1950s there have been no comprehensive analyses nor any comparative research into the problems of contemporary political systems. During the last twenty years new analytical instruments, procedures and techniques for the study of political processes have been worked out, and an enormous amount of empirical material concerning political systems both in developed and in developing countries has been collected. All this has made it possible that a method of comparative analysis should be established, that can also be applied to contemporary political systems. In American political science Gabriel Almond has particular merits for the elaboration of a comparative method in that field. This paper deals with the efforts of G. Almond, J. Coleman, and B. Powell to work out a theoretical approach convenient for the comparison of contemporary political systems.
