This article was prepared as an introduction to a special issue of [Policy Sciences] which will appear in December 1975. The purpose of the special issue is to provide a representative sample of work dealing with public policy issues from cross-national or comparative perspectives. A collection of essays, all of which were prepared for this issue, will be included. This introductory essay identifies the issues that define comparative policy analysis, suggests reasons for its relative neglect, and argues for its inclusion in the general field of policy analysis. The essay further delineates comparative analysis by an extensive discussion of the selected articles.
