Abstract
Professor Dalton's research focuses on the changing nature of citizen politics in contemporary societies and how theses changes are transforming democratic politics. He stydues the political beliefs of Western publics and the linkage between these beliefs and on-going changes in citizen behavior, partisan politics, and policy outcomes. His has done research on the growing impact of the environmental movement in contemporary politics. He is also one of the leading American experts on German politics, especially public opinion in the postwar era. His recent work studies the role of citizens in the development of new democracies. Professor Dalton teaches graduate courses on theories of comparative politics, political culture, and political methodology.
