Abstract

Why do the various tenets of the party identification approach apply with different force to different political cultures? We develop a theoretical answer in the area of political socialization research and test its validity on data from eight countries. Our model is found to have stronger empirical support than a previous model developed by Percheron and Jennings. The evidence supports our contention that the party identification approach should not be simply rejected or accepted but rather investigated to understand when and why it applies.
