Latest review

First review round: 24.9 weeks. Overall rating: 3 (good). Outcome: Rejected.

It seems that two of the referees did not possess very deep knowledge of the main theoretical literature, and one of the reviewers admitted he/she is neither sociologist nor philosopher. Furthermore, the comment about country selection is unfair: postdoc projects work like this. To get funding, you are supposed to find an interesting comparative case, and there are some reasons for this but for the topic of the manuscript it could have been anywhere. It is just that my project got funding to study these two particular countries.
