Seymour Martin Lipset (March 18, 1922 – December 31, 2006) was an American sociologist. His major work was in the fields of political sociology, trade union organization, social stratification, public opinion, and the sociology of intellectual life. He also wrote extensively about the conditions for democracy in comparative perspective. A socialist in his early life, Lipset later moved to the right, and was often considered a neoconservative.

The book is an influential analysis of the bases of democracy across the world. One of the important sections is Chapter 2: "Economic Development and Democracy. Larry Diamond and Gary Marks argue that "Lipset's assertion of a direct relationship between economic development and democracy has been subjected to extensive empirical examination, both quantitative and qualitative, in the past 30 years. And the evidence shows, with striking clarity and consistency, a strong causal relationship between economic development and democracy. In this paper I discuss the factors and processes affecting the prospects for the of democracy throughout the world. I survey cultural and economic variables, religious traditions, various electoral systems, the importance of a participatory civil society, and the methods through which political parties should be structured to maintain stability. From my work on my doctoral dissertation (Lipset 1950, 1968) down to the present, I have been interested in the problem of American exceptionalism.

What can one say about Seymour Lipset, the grand diety of the subfield of comparative politics? Along with Gabe Almond and a few other luminaries, Lipset blazed a trail and managed to put the "science" in political science at a time when most of his colleagues were writing one-dimensional country studies and other subjective hoo-ha. "Political Man" is first and foremost a work of political sociology, in the tradition of Weber, Marx and Parsons, and as such seeks to uncover the social factors underlying political variables like legitimacy and stability. Since Lipset's work is dated in several ways, including an obsolete cold-war division of world comparative categories, as well as a positivistic, naive modernist belief in the objectivity of social sciences, the book's shine has been somewhat dimmed over time. However, the meticulousness and parsimony of Lipset's research, coupled with the stunningly coherent writing style, make the book a mouth-watering treat nonetheless. Political scientists of today should read the book more for form than content, as it is a true masterpiece of rigorous objectivity and of social scientific analysis in general.
