In this unusual book, Heinz Eulau addresses the problematic relatioonship between big things and little things in governance and society-a significant theme in the study of political behavior, institutions, and processes. By connecting his own "personal pathways" with his and others' explorations of the micro-macro continuum in politics, Eulau makes a unique contribution to social science.

Eulau's book demonstrates how events and experiences in the scholar's private and academic life can be the source of fresh insights but also of hidden biases. It provides glimpses of the troubling problems involved in coming to grips with the false dualism between individual and collective phenomena. It tells of the ups and downs of the research enterprise, of unexpected moments of critical discernment, and of the emergence of new visions. The reader becomes a kind of "observing participant" in the evolution of the author's gradual awareness of a profound dilemma in social inquiry -- the "micro-macro gap".
