One of the problems that bedevils political scientists who try to tie their work to theory or to ongoing debates in the literature is that events keep moving. And, unfortunately, the pace of academic publishing in the United States can create problems for an author whose work attempts to explain some portion of the contemporary world. And then there can be another delay before that review is published and read by members of the scholarly community. Of course, if the theoretical argument is sufficiently robust, no amount of turbulence in the political system in that two or three year period between the final scholarly observation and publication would make a difference in the argument.
