Political Behavior, Vol. 23, No. 1, 2001 The four articles in this special issue nicely illustrate both the promise and the challenge in the comparative analysis of mass political phenomena. Two articles, by Ikeda and Huckfeldt and by Weisberg and Tanaka, represent sensi- tive extensions of earlier work by the U.S. collaborator. A third, by Blais and his colleagues, challenges all of us to get our measures right before we venture down the path of cross-national generalization. The fourth article, by Kim and Fording, is very clear about cross-national comparability but challenges us to think hard about microfoundations for macrophenomena. Indeed all four arti- cles do this. And all four focus on the competing forces for stability and change, an appropriate theme for the new millennium. Ikeda and Huckfeldt take Columbia global, so to speak. Where Huckfeldt has made elaboration on Columbia-school insights about social interaction and political behavior the leitmotiv of his career, this article extends the analysis to a social context in which interaction and perception may—emphasis on may—differ from that in deeply mined South Bend. The natural question is whether Japanese respondents perceive actual agreement and disagreement differently from U.S. respondents. Ikeda and Huckfeldt are careful
