This paper compares critically the political cultures of Sweden and the United States, illuminating theories of politics such as Conservatism, Liberalism, Social Democracy among other doctrines in modern times. Arguments are used about definitions of culture, the difficulty in defining culture, political life, emotions, perception and indeed political action as well as the complex character of decision-making within the state. Some case studies by authors are examined to highlight the application of some theories such as Ethnomethodology, Postmodernism and Symbolic Interactionism.

From the Paper:

"Donald Hancock , et al, (1998) stated that the political culture in Sweden went through a process of change during the nineteenth and twentieth Centuries and that this process of system change is both cause and effect of a political culture that affirms traditional values and simultaneously endorses efforts at political creativity. Hancock, et al, noted that linking these attributes is a willingness among political actors to seek compromise solutions to partisan disagreements. They continue to state that the most important traditional element inherent in Swedish political culture is a deeply ingrained respect for constitutionalism and law."
