When Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses on the church door at Wittenberg, he offered a challenge to the dominant establishment of which he was a member. In this provocative book, political scientist Anne Norton proposes 95 theses that launch a brilliant, witty polemic against the reigning orthodoxies in her own field. Rejecting the antiquated and stultifying models encountered in textbooks and in courses on methodology and championed by the self-appointed gatekeepers of a narrow and parochial political science, Norton opens the gates to new practices, new principles, new questions, more methods, and more demanding ethical and scientific criteria. Practice, she argues, has outstripped old models and conventional standards. Drawing on the most daring and rigorous work in structuralism, poststructuralism, postcolonialism, cultural studies, literary theory, institutional analysis, and the philosophy of science, she offers practical advice for students of politics, culture, and method.

Anne Norton is Alfred Cass term professor of political science at the University of Pennsylvania. Her books include Blood Rites of the Poststructuralists: Word, Flesh, and Revolution and Republic of Signs: Liberal Theory and American Popular Culture.

“A wise, tough, savvy, iconoclastic attack on the social science establishment. 95 Theses is a strong, daring, and important book. Everyone in the social sciences ought to read it.”—James Morone, author of Hellfire Nation: The Politics of Sin in American History
