Graduate Education in Government presents an empirical study of nine of the best graduate schools for political science degrees in the United States, France and England chosen on the basis of recent surveys and reputation. The author gathered his information through interviews with administrators and faculty at each institution, in an attempt to discover a prevalent pattern for master's and doctoral programs based on the commonalities of the programs. The comparisons were made in terms of program organization, prevalent educational philosophy, admission and selection practices, curricula, graduation requirements, student advising patterns, and factors accounting for their excellence in graduate political science education. Though the author found much in common with all the programs, more similarities occurred between the two European programs, than between the European programs and the United States programs.1 The London School of Economics and Political Science, Graduate School Prospectus 1996/97 (London: London School of ... 9 Department of Government, Harvard University, aquot;PhD Program in Political Scienceaquot; (Cambridge: July 1994): 33.
