Abell, Peter (1992) Comparing case studies: an introduction to comparative narratives. CEPDP, 103. Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics and Political Science, London, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
The paper provides a systematic method for comparing case-studies which take the form of a sequence of events. The idea of abstracting and/or generalising the structure of a case-study using a mapping rule which creates either a tolerance (a symmetric reflexive relationship) or an equivalence on the domain set is explored. An example is given of comparing the evolution of co-operation in a number of co-operative organisations.
