When Gabriel Almost first introduced the structural-functional approach to comparative politics in the s, it represented a vast improvement over the then-prevailing mechanistic theories of David Eaton and others derived largely from international relations. Prior to structural functionalism, scholars had no way of systematically comparing different political systems beyond a rudimentary, and oftentimes inconclusive, analysis of their institutions. At its most basic level, the model of structural functionalism posits that a political system is made up of institutions structures , such as interest groups, political parties, the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, and a bureaucratic machinery. This information is not sufficient, however, to make a meaningful comparison between two political systems. Two countries may share many of the same political institutions, but what distinguishes the two systems are the ways in which these institutions function.

Political culture , in political science , a set of shared views and normative judgments held by a population regarding its political system. The notion of political culture does not refer to attitudes toward specific actors, such as a president or prime minister , but rather denotes how people view the political system as a whole and their belief in its legitimacy. American political scientist Lucian Pye defined political culture as the composite of basic values, feelings, and knowledge that underlie the political process.
Since , many political scientists, at first mostly Americana, have adopted the systems approach to the study of politics. He wants to revolutionise the system and study of politics. The Structural Functional approach is a product of behavioral revolution in American political studies after 2nd World War. From the study of the cultures of various political systems Almond has found that there cannot exist any all-modern and all-primitive cultures.

Political regimes, political conflict, mass political mobilization, and political instability are other topics examined in this article.
