Part 1 Intellectual equipment: worrying about social change; thinkers face change; what was happening; big structures, large processes, huge comparisons; what to do. Part 2 Four pernicious postulates: false principles; society is a thing apart; mental events cause social behaviour; Social Change is a coherent phenomenon; stage theories. Part 3 Four more pernicious postulates: differentiation is a progressive master process; differentiation versus integration; change, strain, disorder; illegitimate versus legitimate force. Part 4 Comparing: eradicating pernicious postulates; will total history save us?; the case for huge (but not stupendous) comparisons; no safety in numbers; ways of seeing; looking at comparisons. Part 5 Individualizing comparisons: the will to individualize; kings or people?; cracks in the foundation. Part 6 Universalizing comparisons: the decline of natural history; models of revolution; Theda Skocpol's revolutions. Part 7 Finding variation: how and when to look for variation; Barrington Moore compares. Part 8 Encompassing comparisons: encompassing the world; Stein Rokkan encompasses; Rokkan's Conceptual Maps of Europe; what's wrong? what should we do about it?. Part 9 Conclusions: the tasks at hand.
